Mental exercise :
1) Compute the torque applied by a 1 pound force applied to the end of a 1
2) Compute the torque applied by a 1 pound force applied to the end of a 10
Hint : They are not the same, even though the applied force (eg the force
from resisting the motion of the trailing arm) is the same.
