    I need a reference book to read the following topics-
    a) Generalized coordinates; b) D'Alembert's principle and Lagrange's equations; c)Hamilton equations; d) Motion of rigid bodies in two dimensions.
    The topics need to be covered only at graduation level.

    Thanking you in anticipation.

    I think Classical Dynamics of particles and systems by Marion and Thornton is nice.
