This paper is concerned with the problem of obtaining the differential equation of the trajectory of dynamical system. Time is eliminated by means of some first integral linear with respect to the velocities. As an example, the stability of rotation of a heavy asymmetric rigid body with a fixed point under the action of the Newtonian central force field is considered.
