...Brandon M. Kilbourne; Emanuel Andrada; Martin S. Fischer; John A. Nyakatura ABSTRACT Differing limb proportions in terms of length and mass, as well as differences in mass being concentrated proximally or distally, influence the limb's moment of inertia (MOI), which represents its resistance to...

... substrates. We quantified morphology using the polar moment of inertia, a parameter used in calculating kinetic energy that describes shell area distribution and resistance to rotation. We quantified mussel locomotion by determining the ratio of rotational ( K rot ) to translational kinetic energy ( K trans...
