- One law of motion is: F=ma
- Another, using L as the linear momentum, is: F = dL/dt

If the first equation can be characterized (ignoring reference frames) as a "

*" (since is concerned with the second derivative of the position coordinate) (also ignoring moving reference frames, etc.)...*

**coordinate-based equation**Then, how would one characterizes the second equation? Yes, I can see it is different, but would one say "more general?"

How would one state the difference in the formulation? "

**"**

*?-based equation*
