This model describes the dynamics of a waterwheel. The wheel has 10 cups that are filled when as they pass over the top of the arc of the wheel (imagine a Ferris wheel where instead of seats there are buckets. Water is flowing down on the Ferris wheel filling the buckets). The weight of the water makes the wheel turn. However, in this model, the buckets leak. So if the flow of the water from the top is too slow, some interesting motion can occur. This waterwheel model is a perfect physical...
