## Making a water-wheel

INVESTIGATION

Problem situation

You are required to lift a certain number of drawing pins over a distance of 60 cm. Your power source is 4 ℓ of water that is supplied 1,5 m above the rotor in a 3 mm plastic pipe.

Design limitations

You may use any one of the following:

For the rotor:

• a cork stopper or
• two cardboard circles, each with a diameter of 20 cm or
• an empty cotton reel

For the axle:

• two toothpicks or
• a knitting needle or
• a 15 cm nail or
• a long rounded pencil or
• a kebab skewer

• two egg boxes from which the “cups” have been cut out or
• thick cardboard or
• an empty 2 ℓ plastic cool drink bottle from which the blades can be cut or
• a plastic margarine punnet from which the blades can be cut or
• plastic teaspoons or
• plastic ice-cream scoops (the flat kind)

Examples of water-wheels:

For the stand:

• a ruler with wire that is fastened to the axle at both ends or
• a piece of wood with string that is fastened to the axle or
• an empty 2 ℓ plastic bottle with the bottom cut out or
• a large plastic juice bottle or
• a 2 ℓ plastic milk bottle

To supply the water source:

• a jug that is marked in litres
• a length of plastic tubing (1,5 m long, 3 mm in diameter) fastened to a funnel

To catch up the water: a large, flat plastic bowl

To lift the drawing pins (the hoisting apparatus):

• string or
• wool
• a bowl with a flat bottom for the drawing pins
• an eyelet

You will also need:

• a pair of scissors
• Prestik
• plasticine
• a knife
• glue
• waterproof paint and varnish
• a paint brush
• a stapler
• a pencil
• a ruler
• a stylus
• a protractor (for positioning the blades)

## [lo 1.5]

Let us analyse the situation and write a design proposal. (A design proposal is a short statement that could describe a probable solution.)

Complete the following:

I am going to design and make a ________that will be capable of lifting a

number of __________over a distance of _________cm vertically

by using some of the suitable material and tools that have been mentioned.

Design

## [lo 1.4]

Do research on hoisting apparatus (pulleys) and turbines (water-wheels) and draw or paste pictures of existing or antique machines. Briefly explain how they worked. (Find out more about the Egyptian shadoof or the water-wheels of Archimedes.)

are nano particles real
yeah
Joseph
Hello, if I study Physics teacher in bachelor, can I study Nanotechnology in master?
no can't
Lohitha
where we get a research paper on Nano chemistry....?
nanopartical of organic/inorganic / physical chemistry , pdf / thesis / review
Ali
what are the products of Nano chemistry?
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
learn
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level
learn
da
no nanotechnology is also a part of physics and maths it requires angle formulas and some pressure regarding concepts

what is variations in raman spectra for nanomaterials
ya I also want to know the raman spectra
Bhagvanji
I only see partial conversation and what's the question here!
what about nanotechnology for water purification
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
Professor
I think
Professor
Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.

what is the stm
is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
Damian
How we are making nano material?
what is a peer
What is meant by 'nano scale'?
What is STMs full form?
LITNING
scanning tunneling microscope
Sahil
how nano science is used for hydrophobicity
Santosh
Do u think that Graphene and Fullrene fiber can be used to make Air Plane body structure the lightest and strongest. Rafiq
Rafiq
what is differents between GO and RGO?
Mahi
what is simplest way to understand the applications of nano robots used to detect the cancer affected cell of human body.? How this robot is carried to required site of body cell.? what will be the carrier material and how can be detected that correct delivery of drug is done Rafiq
Rafiq
if virus is killing to make ARTIFICIAL DNA OF GRAPHENE FOR KILLED THE VIRUS .THIS IS OUR ASSUMPTION
Anam
analytical skills graphene is prepared to kill any type viruses .
Anam
Any one who tell me about Preparation and application of Nanomaterial for drug Delivery
Hafiz
what is Nano technology ?
write examples of Nano molecule?
Bob
The nanotechnology is as new science, to scale nanometric
brayan
nanotechnology is the study, desing, synthesis, manipulation and application of materials and functional systems through control of matter at nanoscale
Damian
Is there any normative that regulates the use of silver nanoparticles?
what king of growth are you checking .?
