Structure and Interpretation of Classical Mechanics
An analogous result holds when the ‘s depend explicitly on time.
a. Show that in this case the kinetic energy contains terms that are linear in the generalized velocities.
where is called the generalized momentum.
where is the velocity selector. And has no velocity component?
“… is a homogeneous function of the generalized velocities of degree 2.”
What does the actually mean?
