 Formulated differently,​ the configuration space is the possible "​positions"​ of a mechanical system. Take note that the states of motion, eg. velocities/​momenta are not part of the configuration space. This is in contrast to the [[basic_tools:​phase_space|phase space]], where we also take the states of motion into account. Formulated differently,​ the configuration space is the possible "​positions"​ of a mechanical system.

-The state of a system is recorded in a configuration space point through all the locations ​and all the velocities ​that the objects in the system have at a given point in time. +The state of a system is recorded in a configuration space point through all the locations that the objects in the system have at a given point in time. 
  
 The time evolution of a system can then be represented as a path in configuration space. ​ The time evolution of a system can then be represented as a path in configuration space. ​
