Introduction to Analytical Mechanics

Lagrange’s Equations

Siamak G. Faal

An introduction to Lagrange’s approach to derive the differential equations of motion for a system composed of multiple rigid bodies. This presentation covers some of the basics required to understand Lagrange’s formulation, a brief discussion on Newtonian vs. Lagrangian dynamics and discussions on generalized coordinates, constraints and virtual work. The lecture concludes with some examples of Lagrange’s formulation.
