Tricks Potentially Demonstrating PM Principles     back to PM Main

I've brainstormed some practical dynamics demonstrative of principles which
might work in higher-efficiency devices:

SIMPLE TRICKS THAT MAY DEMONSTRATE PM PRINCIPLES  

1. Gravity and Relation: An oaktag or other lightly stiff board may be placed
laterally between one's hands so that the center weighs unsupported or resists
pressure from hands through the flexion of the board; the weight of the board is just
significant enough that it is certain that some force returns from upwards pressure;
the board trick demonstrates how it is not a given that a plane is completely inert,
also that pressure applied to flex the board downwards is distinguished significantly
from pressure applied to flex downwards; the difference bears on what I call
"volitional principles" of energy















-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SIMPLE EXAMPLES: A coin seemingly suspended on edge (above left) shows
how common assumptions may not apply to every case. Here the coin is altered in
thickness, resulting in a case where it CAN in fact stand on its own, on a level
surface.
The second photo (above right) is the case of dominoes which extend a given
movement across space and through various twists and turns, without increasing the
initial force required. Considering two cases, one in which the first domino struck a
short series, and another in which a long one is struck, the potential of energy is
extensible independent of initial force. Obviously it takes greater energy to set up a
greater number of dominoes, but in the abstract it may be conceived that upright
dominoes are symbolic of the potential of mass, whereas a pushed domino is the
active or input principle. Thus extension is more a product of mass-energy than of
input-energy (for examples of designs attempting advantage on this principle see the
Tilt Motor and Motive Mass Type 2).

2.
Slope and Viscocity: in the context of a hoola hoop or  a sling, or the center
slipping out of a deck of cards, particular methods make enormous differences in
effects. This suggests a dynamic whereby special attention of the relationship
between slope and viscocity leads to greater energy conservation when compared
to the desired result. This has been evident to me particularly when riding a bicycle
up a slight incline, where I have found that approaching a slope at an angle is
rationally speaking less of a slope, and also that this observation combined with a
subtle S-curve in the approach (accounting for balance and speed on the bicycle)
results in a near miraculous retention of energy and reduction of frictional resistance.
(This is far more difficult at high speeds, in the case of a small ramp). I attribute this
to distributing weight at an angle that is not strictly vertical, in spite of a forward
directiveness, such that energy is converted not into the angle of the ramp, but at an
angle tangential to the angle, such that the angle on the tire is steep, but in relation to
the directivity of the energy, is actually quite shallow. If there are means to using less
energy going up, presumably it is easier than thought to gain energy going down. For
example, I must refer to an argument I have used in the past, that throwing energy
into a downward slope is more productive than throwing it into an upward slope.
The same is the case with downward trajectories, even if in ballistics this is not an
efficient use of distance. This viscous effect may also be demonstrated in a tureen or
basin in which water is cycled in a centrifugal manner.

3. Constructs: Houses use energy to remain upright; perhaps the same constant
energy might be used towards movement for the same duration; some say inputting
for movement is different from input for simple mass, in part because built structures
rely on inherent properties of materials; however, one might argue that a windmill
that is power-viable takes no more energy to support than a similar structure that
doesn't produce; thus, where movement is inherent in structure, this suggests energy
inherent in mass. That perpetual motion would follow from this principle is less a
matter of the energy-viability of mass than of the mobile properties of structure.
