A modified ("peaceful") trebuchet.....
« on: November 19, 2019, 01:50:05 PM », not a war throwing simple machine , but a possible gravity powered simple machine ,if we take a look at :
.....but play a vertical accelerating track ,as Eric Limer's model :
     With a simplified leverage (one constant arm-one variable arm) , we can tumble the torque difference on the same side of the fulcrum and...have we a continuous gravity unbalance ("self" motion)?!
     For the modified trebuchet we can play the variable arm ,if we take a look at :
.....but play a SINGLE ARM !
     The wheel concept is "minimized" as a lever concept...
