This lesson covers the derivation and application of Lagrange's equation in dynamics. It begins with a discussion on the formulation of dynamic problems in discrete and continuous systems, touching on Newton's Law and Hamilton's principle. The lesson then delves into the Lagrange's equation, explaining its simplicity and wide applicability, especially in complex systems. The lesson further illustrates the derivation of Lagrange's equations and their application in various cases, including discrete and continuous systems. It also highlights the differences between Lagrange's equation and Hamilton's equation, and the conditions under which each is applicable. The lesson concludes with examples of single degree freedom systems and multi-degree freedom systems.
