(please give me accurate answer) what is the purpose canonical transformation? I mean why we are converting set of generalized coordinate and momenta in one coordinate to other

    Now, we can choose our generalized coordinates either as Cartesian coordinates (x,y)(x,y) or plane polar coordinates (r,θ)(r,θ).

    it's bcoz sometimes problems are not easy to solve in some specific coordinate system. like treating sphere in Cartesian would be too messy so
  • Vaishali sharma thankyou
    hope u got it

    dear sometimes it's convenient to go from old coordinate system to new coordinate syatem.

    but why

    and important thing is that equation of motion remains unchanged.
