Abstract: A result is presented which suggests the form of global Liapunov functions for many nonlinear mechanical systems in the ``pseudodissipative'' class. Consequently, this result often provides a means of ``global analysis'' of the overall behavior of such a system. In each of three examples, the general behavior of a mechanical system is ascertained by means of the result presented.
