Least Action Principle on an Air Table
Provost, J. P.
American Journal of Physics, 43, 9, 774-781, Sep 75
Presents a mathematical demonstration that the least action principle enables both the trajectories and the conservation laws (of energy, momentum, and angular momentum) to be obtained without using Lagrange's equations. Discusses an experimental procedure which utilizes air tables to demonstrate the conservation laws and interactions at a distance. (Author/MLH)
