|Levels||Beyond the First Year and Advanced|
Students will * Be able to identify the relevant parameters of a system and understand how to represent them with variables, * Be able to code in the appropriate Lagrangian differential equations that represent the equations of motion for the system, * Be able to produce pseudo-code for how the numeric integration will work, * Be able to use modern differential equation solvers to produce the interpolated dynamics of the system, * Be able to plot the motion of the system, * Be able to use Lagrangian multipliers and constraints to identify the time-dependent constraint forces.
