Kinetic energy of Freely Jointed Chain

  1. Dear all,

    Imagine you have a Freely Jointed Chain in 3D (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ideal_chain), segments of same length which are consecutively connected with free joints.
    I need to calculate the kinetic energy of that system, total and per segment.
    Any ideas or hint will be appreciated.
