Perpetual Motion Concept Using Water and Leverage PipesSUMMARYThe device is an octagonal wheel, which if torque is applied, turnsabout an axis. On each side of the octagon is mounted an arm. Thearm is a pipe, which projects from one corner of the octagon, alongthe side and outwards some distance in the same direction towardsan attached projecting outer tank, which is spherical.Attached to the pipe along the length of its side of the octagon arethree tanks, collectively equal, or approximately equal, to the volumeof the outer drum. If we assume for now that sufficient torque couldbe generated, apertures in the pipe opposite the triple tanks allowthe triple tanks to be filled during the low point in the cycle, when thatportion of the wheel is submerged. As the wheel turns, hatches thatwere open at the low point close by gravity and force of the water,trapping the water within the lower tanks and a length of the arm.Continuing upward the hatches close more tightly under waterweight, and then at just past the midpoint the contents of the tripletanks are emptied down the arm (over the hatches) and into thecorresponding outer tank, increasing--at least temporarily--leverageforce acting on the rising water weight.With the correct proportions it is possible to have two outer tanksfilled for a portion of the path every 22 degrees that it succeeds tomove, pulling on approximately 10 or 11 filled triple tanks positionedat a lesser radius.Thus if each triple tank is exactly 1/3 the waterweight of an outertank, the leverage force of two outer tanks need only be greater thanthe waterweight of (11/3) = 3.67 outer tanks at the radius of the tripletanks. So if twice the distance from the axle is twice the leverage, Imight estimate that at least at one point in the cycle, sufficient torquewould be applied to suggest movement. IF that force is sufficient tomove the wheel 22 degrees, then it is again in the same position, andthe cycle would repeat, if we make certain assumptions.Assumptions such as that it is possible for the fluid to fill the tripletanks completely while the wheel is in motion, and possible for theouter tanks to be emptied without hindering the device. I also havenot accounted for the inevitable resistance of the outer tanksdragging through the water. However it seemed to me that waterresistance would only allow the triple tanks to fill; it would notreduce the bulk of the water acting in one or two outer tanks.For criticism of this design, see my Personal Critique.Fluid Leverage Components                   nathancoppedge.com
