Using D’ Alembert’s principle, show that the following relation can be obtained for a system of particles under generalized coordinates,

What is the significance of ? (Paper-1) (section – A)

### Explanation

• The mathematical statement of D’ Alembert’s principle is given as,

• Transform D’ Alembert’s principle into expressions containing independent generalized coordinates only.

• Equation (2), gives an infinitesimal virtual displacement at particular instant . We can see that the variation with respect to time is absent in equation… (108 more words) …

» Classical Mechanics » System of Particles » Cyclic Coordinates

Appeared in Year: 2012

### Write in Short

Express Lagrange’s equation of motion for the cyclic coordinate and show that the result leads to the general conservation theorem for the generalized momentum coordinates. (Paper - 1) (Section – A)

### Describe in Detail

Starting with Newton’s second law of motion, establish D’ Alembert’s principle and discuss its significance? (Paper-1) (Section –A)

### Explanation

• Let consider a system described by generalized coordinates . And this system undergoes a certain displacement in configuration space. If for this displacement it does not take any time and it is consistent with the constraints on the system. This kind of displacement is called virtual.

• In virtual… (231 more words) …
