Pinwheels have been used for many things along history. One of the most interesting uses I’ve ever seen is making a pinwheel act as a free energy generator, powered by gravity.
I really don’t guarantee whether it will work or not, but I’m eager to find anybody who tried it and their results. Gravity is one of the disputed possible sources of energy that, if harvested properly and if working, would change the way we see things – forever.
So, here’s how the pinwheel generator supposedly works:
“As the weight ball in the lower cylinder descends, it forces the liquid out of the cylinder, through the Pelton wheel (turning the wheel and the generator), and into the upper cylinder. As the ball nears the bottom of the cylinder, the liquid weight of the mechanism is concentrated in the upper and right side cylinders, over-balancing the mechanism to rotate to the right when unlocked.
As the ball presses down on the unlocking mechanism, it also compresses the push bar spring. If the ball weighs 60,000 lbs, the energy in the spring can equal 59,999 lbs. Once the ball unlocks the mechanism, the spring bar pushes the lower cylinder out of the stop block. This push, along with the over-balance, causes the whole mechanism to rotate 90 degrees to where the right side cylinder becomes the lower cylinder, having now its ball begin its descent-producing electricity.
This process continues perpetually. An air venting pipe connects the cylinders that are opposite to each other so that as the liquid enters the top cylinder, the air it is displacing goes out the pipe and into the bottom cylinder, being assisted by the vacuum being created in the bottom cylinder by it’s ball descending.
This mechanism can function because the laws of entropy prevent only singular mechanisms from performing perpetually because they need to use the energy they produce to recycle themselves. Being a compound mechanism, this generator does not. The energy is generated, gravity rotates it.”
If any of you tried this experiment and it did or did not work, please comment. Also, if you have an opinion after seeing the schematics presented below, say your thoughts.
