Let \(\dot{\omega }\) be the canonical symplectic structure of \(T\mathbb{R}^{2n}\) considered as the pull-back of the Liouville symplectic form of \(T^{\ast}\mathbb{R}^{2n}\). Fix a submanifold of \(\mathbb{R}^{2n}K\) and a smooth function \(h:K\rightarrow \mathbb{R}\). A generalized Hamiltonian system is defined as a submanifold of \(T\mathbb{R}^{2n}\) over \(K\), which is also a Lagrangian submanifold of \((T\mathbb{R}^{2n}, \dot{\omega })\) with respect to \(h\). The aim of this work is to study submanifolds \(K\) on which solvable generalized Hamiltonian systems may exist. The Section 2 deals with solvability on even-dimensional submanifolds while Section 3 concerns solvability over constant-rank constraints. A proper Morse function on the sphere \(S^2\) and an associated Hamiltonian vector field are studied in the last section.
