1- Suppose I've got k holonomic constraint equations for n particles, how can I be sure those are all the ones there are and I didn't miss any? I mean, in a given situation, I can be pretty sure that I've got all, but is there a general rule about the number of constraint equations that are sufficient?

2- What does "independent holonomic constrains equatiins" mean? My book always insists they have to be independent. Does it simply mean none of them is a scalar multiple of the other?

3- Suppose I've got n holonomic constraint equatione that completely capture the constraint forces, are they unique?
