## Main Question or Discussion Point

Lagrangian Mechanics uses generalized coordinates and generalized velocities in configuration space.

Hamiltonian Mechanics uses coordinates and corresponding momenta in phase space.

Could anyone please explain the difference between configuration space and phase space.

Thank you in advance for your help...
