- TL;DR Summary
- I was studying the derivation of the lagrangian formalism from Goldstein's textbook for mechanics and at one point they made a claim that generalized co-ordinates and velocities are independent and the derivative of one with respect to the other is zero.

How can I make sense of this and further how to think of this in the context of phase space diagrams?
