First off i hope i am posting in the right forum for this question, seeing as it pertains more to mechanics i thought that this would be the best place to ask it??
So, my understanding of a torque measurement is this. Lets say a servo has 11 Kg/ cm of torque, which equates to roughly 156oz/in? Does that mean that if the servo had a "arm" that was one inch long, that it could conceivably lift a weight that was 156oz's? Or if the arm was 10 inches long, it could lift 15.6oz's?... I am working on a robot arm and i want the arm to be able to extend as far as a human arm and to have a few degrees of freedom, while still being able to lift 5 or 6 ounces? The servos i bought are rated for a stall torque of 11 Kg/cm which is quite a bit, but i don't know if it will quite do it. Should i double up on the servos?..... Thanks in advance guys
