(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

There is a joint system of rods and masses.We need to set up Lagrangian.

2. Relevant equations

L= T-V , T = Kinetic energy , V = Potential energy

3. The attempt at a solution

Hey what should we take as the zero of potential. So does the Lagrangian depend on the zero of potential?
