Structure and Interpretation of Classical Mechanics

.

Notice that these forces of constraint are proportional to the normal to the constraint surface at each instant and thus do no work for motions that obey the constraint.

**b**. Write the formal Lagrangian

such that Lagrange’s equations will yield the Newton’s equations you derived in part **a**.
