WHAT DOES D'ALEMBERT'S PRINCIPLE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

d'Alembert's principle

D'Alembert's principle

D'Alembert's principle, also known as the Lagrange–d'Alembert principle, is a statement of the fundamental classical laws of motion. It is named after its discoverer, the French physicist and mathematician Jean le Rond d'Alembert. It is the dynamic analogue to the principle of virtual work for applied forces in a static system and in fact is more general than Hamilton's principle, avoiding restriction to holonomic systems. A holonomic constraint depends only on the coordinates and time. It does not depend on the velocities. If the negative terms in accelerations are recognized as inertial forces, the statement of d'Alembert's principle becomes The total virtual work of the impressed forces plus the inertial forces vanishes for reversible displacements. The principle states that the sum of the differences between the forces acting on a system of mass particles and the time derivatives of the momenta of the system itself along any virtual displacement consistent with the constraints of the system, is zero.

definitionDefinition of d'Alembert's principle in the English dictionary

The definition of d'Alembert's principle in the dictionary is the principle that for a moving body the external forces are in equilibrium with the inertial forces; a generalization of Newton's third law of motion.
