This means that the further away from the axis the greater the torque is! In addition to this force analog, we also have an analog for one of the most important parts of a problem in physics: force diagrams/free body diagrams. This analog is most commonly referred to as a rigid body diagram. It is very similar to an FBD, except you can see where the force is being applied to the diagram! They usually look something like:

A large portion of the time you will have to use force diagrams and equations in conjunction with torque!
As with almost everything else that is translational, there is a form of rotational energy! This does not mean that there isn't any other type of energy occurring though! Most of the time there will be a combination of translational and rotational kinetic energy.
