    First, that link didn't come out right. Second, that video is more than an hour long. Do you really expect us to listen to that to answer your question? Third, you already have a another thread on the subject of degrees of freedom https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=718480 . Please post there.

    He writes explicitely a question mark over the equal sign, and then goes on to prove that it can't be correct, because you get an absurd answer (the number of degrees of freedom cannot be negative). The conclusion is that the number of constraints is not ##n\mathrm{C}2##.

    I know that he is un proving and i understand it.but what i didn't get was .nc2 how it came?

    ##N\mathrm{C}2## is the number of pairs of particles in a set of ##N## particles. What is it you don't get?
