    The first one attempts to look like a perpetual motion device, the other is just a spinning motor

      @Skyler French the first device uses a motor to speed up the ball once it enters the hole.

      @Sylph also I do not appreciate the hostility and insults in this conversation. I am trying to explain my hypothetical situation to you, and you have made some points that I have explained my reasons of why they don't really factor in, but so far you have not produced a new piece of evidence I understand to actually prevent this from occurring.
      If you are attempting to argue that the expansion of the universe counts as providing more energy to the system (albeit strangly) and thus means its not simply conserving the energy in the system, that is a valid counterpoint. It means the system is technically sustained by an external force. However my counterpoint is that it does not make the spinning ever stop (unless we find out new evidence that shows the expansion stopping), and then it should still count as a perpetual motion thing, albeit one functioning off basically an exploit of reality.

    • Callum Price
      Callum Price Před 26 dny

      @Sylph what are you even talking about in that scenario? You keep trying to bring propagation into this when my example doesn't care about the speed of gravity, but instead cares about gravity equation.
      I'll try to summarize the idea so you can refocus and understand better.
      First you "shield" the area by removing the particles in the area that could overcome the expansion effect and actually physically hit the spinning object. (This could be done with various measures and would need some energy for this setup) The area itself has to have no light source in its observable universe range as to prevent all friction that could be caused by light. Then all gravity sources large enough to override the specific loss point for xenos paradox need to be out of range as well. The exact specific point I havent fully calculated, but its likely gonna mean planet sized stuff is gonna need to be near the edge of observable universe, but since gravity strength is reduced exponentially the farther you are from it, while light does not have that same reduction, it means gravity sources can be somewhat closer than light.
      Then once all that is done, the object is set spinning, and if you have set it up properly, you can get an object that will move forever but in a xenos paradox way. Like the graph for 1÷x it will lose energy but also like the 1÷x graph it will never hit zero energy. If you set it up right you can probably get it to retain at least 25 % perpetually.
      The point of this hypothetical is that friction doesn't need to be completely removed to have a functioning perpetual motion machine. You just need it to continously lose strength by a certain amount.

    • Sylph
      Sylph Před 26 dny

      @Callum Price I'd even mention where you're going to scurry to next (which is the expansion of spacetime meaning a loss of rotational angular speed isn't a loss of energy because the distance from the axis of rotation is expanding.)
      But guess what, it's STILL not perpetual motion, due to the way potential energy works (ie, its potential to affect things). None of your examples have been perpetual motion, you DO keep changing your (erroneous) models for perpetual motion while trying to imply that you're being coherent, and I'm sick of seeing you embarrass yourself assuming that I don't understand something because you didn't teach me.

    this just reminds me of the original marble racing kits that consisted of: 1 large funnel, 2 medium funnels, and 4 small funnels; 5 long "bridges", 3 medium "bridges", and 10 small "bridges"; plus a bunch of vertical tube towers. if you had enough pieces you could make a loop where the marbles would pushes the other ones up and make them race again once enough marbles were added

  • Michael Reale

    The second one should have some sort of turbine that “the balls spin” to make it look like the turbine powers the spining shaft

  • jaye1967

    So, an experiment you could do with the first one is put one ball in it and see how long it goes before the marble stops.

    VAKAS Před měsícem

    So there's no possible way to have a certain charge that will compensate with the kinetic energy? For example, if we label the total kinetic energy in this process as "1 unit of energy per ball", is it impossible for the device to be powered by that same 1 unit of energy in order to continue this process? I know it still wouldn't be perpetual because the ball would eventually erode, but would it work?

    Sorry if this sounds dumb but considering most of it looks like copper already and you add a few more conductors some magnets an alternator wired up to a battery could you theoretically power this with it's own energy for as long as it coukd feasibly last? And would it produce enough energy for other electronic devices? Sorry just really curious!

    Ez Ra Před měsícem

    It may not be a "device", but it's motion is perpetual. I don't care that it relies on gravity. If you left this on a rogue planet, accounting for low temperature and the mass of the ball relative to the planet's gravity, it would go forever until it wore itself out. That's as perpetual as you would ever get from a "true" perpetual motion "device".

    Isnt the point of creating perpetual motion to make something that only needs energy exerted on it once and then keeps going without additional energy? This just has a motor that is constantly keeping this thing working. Like pretty much every other machine or device like we use. I get that true perpetual motion is something that likely will never be achieved but the first device was a lot closer to true perpetual motion than the second one 🙄
