Expert Answer:

Dear vvr vutukuru

Degree of freedom (f) means number of independent co-ordinates required to specify a system.

In three dimensions N number of particles of a system has 3N degrees of freedom.

Now if k be the number of constraints then degree of freedom gets reduced given by, f = 3N-k.
