Verbatim question for GR8677 #36
Mechanics}Lagrangian

Recall Hamilton's Principle (of least action),

where L=T-V is the Lagrangian and T is the kinetic energy and V the potential energy. The potential energy is given in the problem. The choice is obviously (A).

An extremum is a point where the minimum or maximum of a function occurs. Usually, in the realm of classical mechanics, it's a fancy way of referring to the Lagrangian.

I was thinking is this just this easy or is this a trick question. Turns out it is just this easy.NEC
