Suggestions for simple practice lagrangian problems

  1. Jul 26, 2009 #1
    does anyone have any suggestions for websites (and or books) that have some decently simple solved Lagrangian problems that i could try to solve as practice. I'm just a beginner so the simpler it is the better. Also any websites or books that might be good for explanations of Lagrangians.

    Try Schaum's outline of Lagrangian Dynamics. I've never read it but other Schaum's I have read are quite useful. It's cheap for a book! good luck

    I went to my local library, the Carnegie Library in Oakland (Pittsburgh), PA and they had a copy of the Schaums outline so I checked it out. It is very good. I recommend this for anyone learning Lagrangian mechanics.
