Abstract: A rigorous treatment is given of variational formulas for solutions of certain Dirichlet problems for the Laplace operator on Lipschitz domains under interior variations. In particular we extend well-known variational formulas for the torsional rigidity and for capacity from the class of $ {C^1}$ domains to the class of Lipschitz domains. A motivation for this work comes from the use of variational methods in the study of Prandtl-Batchelor flows in fluid mechanics.
