I am given a Hamiltonian and am asked to show that the Hamiltonain is a constant of motion for orbits defined by the corresponding Hamiltonian equations.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

can someone decrypt this for me please...

i.e How do I define orbits for a given hamiltonian and then how do I show that the Hamiltonian is a constant of motion?

Thanks in advance.
