Okay, so my mind has wondered backwards.
Servos are rated in oz*in (or kg*cm). I measure an object using a table scale and it reads it to me as oz, this number however is a force because its actually measuring the objects weight... so, the servos ratings are also incorporating this weight factor (g, gravity term) into the number without revealing itself in the units. This is fine, but, when calculating dynamic torques, sometimes you need to factor in a 'g' term, and this is where my brain hit a wall. Do I factor in a 9.8m/s^2 or 32.15ft/sec^2 term in or what?
The reason is, so far I've been working with mg terms where the weight (in oz) has been easy to measure, but now working with moment of inertia and angular acceleration, I need to know the specifics of the units used to measure the torque characteristics of the servos and weights of my formulas.
Any help/insight into my problems is greatly appreciated, thanks!
