Mechanical Methods for Energy Generation.

First and foremost. Archimedes. The most brilliant person in antiquity. He brings you density, and death rays.
But lets look at that "Eureka" moment. If you don't know the story, Archimedes was enjoying a bath when he realize the concept of density. It was said he ran through the streets of Syracuse naked.

What he realized was a foundation of this model.

The Archimedes Screw.


Why can't we put Emily here incharge of moving water from the east coast to the west coast. She knows how to move water over an incline.

Or how about Ashley. This one is very well done.


The Bell Siphon. By Steve


Now channel the water through a path of generators. Build a small Hydroelectric Generator.

By using the Archimedes screw in conjunction with the Bell Siphon you will generate a rather decent amount of electricity.

This is given to you freely. Build it. Sell them to others. See if you can get it so the screw is powered by the ectricity generated. Just a crank to start or a battery. Show your versions on Ybattery. Please send a link to the video. I want to know your progress.

Then there is this the Leopold Wheel. This in not simple for the energy generated.

Try printing one with a 3d printer. Clunky but Cool.
By the fact this hesitates in the video shows it is producing a net energy generation. Not enough to power a circuit. But interesting.
