English: Examples of generalized coordinates for an open straight path in 2d, one degree of freedom, one generalized coordinate. Only one number is needed to uniquely specify positions on the curve, the examples shown are the arc length s or angle theta. The usual two Cartesian coordinates (x,y) can be parameterized by s or theta.
