Bhaskara’s Wheel – Interesting claim of replication
Posted by keelynet on October 9, 2009
It looks like it could work if its big enough and the right geometry can be achieved…it would be overbalanced and thus rotate…
“A typical application of gravity in a perpetual motion machine is Bhaskara’s wheel, whose key idea is itself a recurring theme, often called the overbalanced wheel. The first documented perpetual motion machine was described by the Indian author Bhaskara in the 11th century.
It was a wheel with containers of mercury around its rim. As the wheel turned, the mercury was supposed to move within the containers in such a way that the wheel would always be heavier on one side of the axle. /
(The video could easily be faked by simple air blowing across the rim of the wheel, note there is no audio. And yet, the idea of an overbalanced wheel always intriques me and I think it has been done before. – JWD) ” – SourceAdvertisements
