Lagrangian Mechanics

An Introductory Course in Lagrangian Mechanics

This is an introductory course in Lagrangian mechanics provided for college students and anyone who is familiar with Newtonian mechanics and calculus.
In this course you will learn how to apply Lagrangian mechanics to the classical systems and find their equations of motion and their physical quantities. When applied to the classical systems, Lagrangian mechanics is equivalent to the Newtonian mechanics, but more easier than it, especially when you are dealing with more complicated systems.

This course is made of three sections:
In section one, you will learn how to use Euler-Lagrange equations and find the equations of motion of classical systems.
In section two, you will learn how to find conservative forces and forces of constraint, by applying Lagrange equations of first kind to the classical systems.
In section three, you will find conservation laws of momentum and energy in Lagrangian Mechanics.

Register to this course and enjoy learning Lagrangian mechanics!
