[tex]\delta (\int f dx ) = 0[/tex]

does not depend explicitly on the independent variable x, i.e. satisfies [tex]f = f(y, \dot{y})[/tex], then the Euler equation can be integrated to

[tex]\dot{y} \frac{\partial f}{\partial \dot{y}} - f = const.[/tex]

How can I give an interpretation of this constant for the case that [tex] f = L[/tex] is the Lagrangian and [tex]x = t[/tex] is the time?
