Okay, a few days ago I posted a question about torque, and recevied A LOT of useful help on understanding the term. I however must admit, that I still don't quite have the intuition behind why a greater torque causes an object to rotate faster. THEREFORE: Can someone with logical, physical arguments explain why a force exerted farther away from the rotational centre causes a bigger angular acceleration than one exerted on a body closer to the rotational centre. This argument must not refer to the term torque, since it is torque as a whole that I wonna get the intuition behind. I was suggested to use an energy observation, that since an angular displacement means bigger work the farther you are from the axis of rotation you get more kinetic energy, but thought this wasn't valid since a force is something instantaneous and doesn't necessarily have to act over time. Therefore clever physicists, give a young student some intution for the important idea of torque..
