Step 1: What Is a Perpetual Motion Machine
Perpetual motion is motion that continues indefinitely without any external source of energy,theoretically!
A perpetual motion machine is a hypothetical machine that can do work indefinitely without an energy source
For more information check this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perpetual_motion
If we had one,we could have infinite energy without spending fossil fuel , nuclear or using wind, or solar power
It would be free energy....
Step 2: Does It Work?!
Well,unfortunately no :(
It violates first & second law of thermodynamic
But it never stopped people thinking how to build one, and not just thinking but they even tried to make it
If you do a google search for perpetual motion you'll seen thousand of ideas
Step 3: Here Is My Design
Step 4: How Does It Work?
I thought this idea
I thought that gravity and air pressure( caused by gravity too) can do this job
Air pressure and gravity are to forces that operate continuously but we are adept to them so we don't fell them
The pool is filled with water and it's linked with a pipe that goes up to vacuum chamber
So the air wants to fill every place and it makes pressure to the water pushing it up ( valve 2 is one way valve it allows water to go up but not down) and this water fill oval container ,when it reaches a certain lever Valve 1 closes the vacuum, and then technically the gravity will pull down the water thought valve 3,which lets water to go down but doesn't let air to fill the vacuum chamber
Thus the water goes again in the pool and valve 1 opens again, so it suck water again in oval container and falls down again and this cycle continuous,hopefully!?
Step 5: Where Is the Problem
The problem can be that water doesn't go down because there is no air to let water down, it's vacuum
So i thought to make larger tube as it seems in the design photo maybe the gravity will pull down it and defeat vacuum
I hope this projects was educating and I hope it will spark any idea into your brain
I didn't have money to put my project from design to reality but im wondering what you think about this project
I know what thermodynamics laws say
Am 18 year old now
And sorry for my English !
