that's a simplifications on yade's side. Go into code and see how `I`
is calculated. You will see that `I` is already multiplied by mass, to
save on repeating this one multiplication every time . I was against
this from start, but Olivier insisted that optimisation is so
important... I would prefer to either rename `inertia` to
`inertia_times_mass` or removing mass from it.
> 2. for the contact moment M(vector), in eqn (25), what is the physical
it's as if the spheres were glued together. Or as if they had a rough
surface which is able to transfer moment. If you use contact moments
and have a "line" of spheres touching each other, then they behave as
a one long beam.
