Mechanics Academy is partially broken because thinkbot is being reworked. Like a pair of phoenixes, they’ll both rise from the ashes soon. As in eventually.

Lagrangian, least action, Euler-Lagrange equations

Lecture overview

This lecture introduces Lagrange's formulation of classical mechanics. That formulation is formal and elegant; it is based on the Least Action Principle. The concepts introduced here are central to all modern physics. The lecture ends with angular momentum and coordinate transforms.
