DISCLAIMER

PM Types
Horizontal Spiral
PENDULUM TYPE 2: Using a
horizontal spiral to create motion, and
height to recover leverage ability.
Depth combines the properties.
PENDULUM TYPE 3: Another
pendulum, this time using a lower
position of the track to create a spiral,
offset by the ability to drop the weight.

During Part A. the ball weight is
actually moving outwards by moving
downwards, at the fullest extent of its
extension, in other words it is supported
by the tilting member, and therefore is
free to roll outwards. The conversion
afterwards occurs by application of the
counterweight, which extends the value
of the support from the tilting member.

A, B, C: Partial model of the trough
pendulum device, one of my more effective
designs. The marble free-falls, applying
pressure to the pendulum at one point. In
the remaining points, it is led along a track
by (in this case) a wire, passing through the
track, and at other points, the marble rolls
on a very slight downward incline (not
shown in this construction), after moving
upwards along the tracked portion. Since
the inclines are very slight, the downwards
pressure upon the wire may actually create
a larger motion, e.g. by applying pressure
from a lower position through an incline in
the most activated part of the wire. Notice
the string fixing the range of the pendulum
so that it does not catapult the marble.
