Perpetual Motion

Perpetual Motion29-06-2021 15:25
To be technical, when light from a distant star travels billions of light years so we can see, it is perpetual. With scientists, they are correct when they say perpetual motion in a machine is impossible.
At the same time, a machine can conserve energy and/or momentum. How a machine conserves energy and how efficiently it can do this is up to who builds it and what the laws of physics allows for.
As for myself, I have 2 different concepts that I am pursuing. My own design is rather simple and there's no reason it shouldn't work. It will be conserving energy as a part of a bound system. It will be conserving the Earth's gravity.
With the other concept, shifting the swing of a pendulum to rotate around an axis other than its fulcrum is much more challenging. And as everyone knows, a pendulum's swing is very efficient. Yet how to change it from a swing to be a part of a rotation? Can pulleys allow for this?
And a last strange thought, could this have been realized before it became impossible and scientists knew calculus?

This is a concept of Johann Bessler that I am building. If it does not work, then I'll leave his work to others.
The pulley at bottom right is the same distance from the corner of the disc as the pulley at the bottom left is. The weight at bottom center will move straight up the arm. And for the sake of argument, let's say this takes work, okay?
If on average, the weight to the right travels 2.5 times the distance that the weight at bottom center moves up the arm, does engineering allow for this? Basically, if something drops a distance of 20, can it lift something to a height of 8?
Does engineering allow for that? How about physics?
And now we get into ratios. If the weight dropping has a potential of 50% of its mass/weight, then 80% of its potential is used to lift a weight. With that said, can 10% of its potential rotate the wheel? And if this is based on 60 in.lbs. or 6.8 n-m of torque, can 6 in.lbs. or 0.68 n-m of torque rotate a wheel?

p.s., just in case, 6 inch pounds means that if all weights on the wheel are the same distance from the axle, can a 1 lb. weight 6 inches from the axle cause the wheel to rotate? And 6 inch lbs. equals 0.68 newton-meters of torque.
With calculus, I can consider thermodynamics but someone else realized those formulas. So with me it's more about how I can use calculus as a tool.

p.s.s, Go U Sub!!! (u substitution)
