# generalized coordinates of simple pendulum

Generalized coordinates. English: Simple nonlinear pendulum, instead of using both x and y coordinates, only the angle is needed to uniquely define the position of the pendulum. I am unable to understand how to put the equation of the simple pendulum in the generalized coordinates and generalized momenta in order to check if it is or not a Hamiltonian System. Simple pendulum via Lagrangian mechanics by Frank Owen, ... where q signifies generalized coordinates and F signifies non-conservative forces acting on the ... are 0. The equation of motion involves it should, although the coordinate is dimensionless. The constraint is the tension in the pendulum rod. Watch Queue Queue. Since radius is ﬁxed, use the angular displacement, θ, as a generalized coordinate. The force of gravity is in the y-direction so wouldn't it be Draw phase space trajectories for the pendulum: periodic motion corresponds to closed trajectories. The generalized coordinates of a simple pendulum are the angular displacement θ and the angular momentum ml 2 θ.Study, both mathematically and graphically, the nature of the corresponding trajectories in the phase space of the system, and show that the area A enclosed by a trajectory is equal to the product of the total energy E and the time period τ of the pendulum. What is the engineering dimension of the generalized momentum. When writing the equations of motion for the simple pendulum, why do textbooks always choose $\theta$ to be the generalized coordinate? So we … Watch Queue Queue This video is unavailable. 3.1 Simple Pendulum We have one generalized coordinate, θ, so we want to write the Lagrangian in terms of θ,θ˙ and then derive the equation of motion for θ. Problem 5: Simple pendulum Choose θ as the generalized coordinate for a simple pendulum. The kinetic energy is T = (1/2)mv2 = (1/2)ml2θ˙2 1 − = Since it is one dimensional, use arc length as a coordinate. What is an appropriate generalized momentum, so that its time derivative is equal to the force? Consider again the motion of a simple pendulum. The aforementioned equation of motion is in terms of as a coordinate, not in terms of x and y. The force of gravit… Explanation:When writing the equations of motion for the simple pendulum, why do textbooks always choose θ to be the generalized coordinate?
