I know I just posted a topic, but I have another question. From my understanding, torque is force times the length of the lever arm, and the longer the lever arm or the more force there is, the more torque is applied. For moment of inertia, it is mass times the square of the distance from the axis of rotation, though it may vary with different shapes. So double the mass, double the moment of inertia, while doubling the distance quadruples the moment of inertia. That said, is moment of inertia usually bigger than the torque in things such as the human body and its limbs? Or is it a different case?
