I don't understand how muscles create torque. More specifically, I am trying to model muscles inside a computer program. I have two line segments (bones) from A->B and B->C, so B is obviously the joint. I was thinking of modeling a muscle as a spring going from A to somewhere on the line BC (but very close to B). Is this what happens biologically? When I flex my biceps, does the muscle tissue "PULL" on my bone after the joint?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can someone please help me understand how this torque is generated?

thank you
