20190306: The Impossibility of Perpetual Motion Machines
 00:06: But there’s one bit of nonsense that is perhaps more persistent than all others: the perpetual motion machine.
 00:19: No working perpetual motion machine has ever been experiment verified.
 00:30: We have perpetual motion machines of the first kind  they violate energy conservation  they pump more energy out than they need to keep running.
 01:18: Designing a perpetual motion machine has a very long history and became quite the craze from the middle ages through the renaissance.
 01:23: The first welldocumented design for a perpetual motion machine was from the 12th century.
 03:37: Before we get to modern perpetual motion machines, let’s take a look at some actually interesting ideas that illustrate the limit of the second law.
 04:00: Individual gas particles are moving around with random – or Brownian motion.
 04:50: That limit is defined by the most important – perhaps the only important perpetual motion system ever conceived: the Carnot cycle.
 05:30: ... gradient and then pump it back in again, making it a candidate perpetual motion ...
 05:52: The Carnot cycle is, in principle, a perpetual motion process.
 06:06: These are perpetual motion machines that do not attempt to generate energy – they just keep themselves running forever.
 06:14: After all, Newton tells us, an object in motion tends to remain in motion unless acted on by an outside force.
 07:17: And then of course there’s the gravitational radiation that will slowly sap the “perpetual motion” of celestial systems.
 07:25: The bestcase scenario for a perpetual motion machine of the third kind is a very, very slow winddown to stillness.
 07:34: Now that we've reviewed three types of possible wrongness in perpetual motion machines, let's look at some of the modern proposals.
 07:42: ... – often lots of wheels with lots of magnets, somehow powering their own motion and producing extra energy ...
 08:15: Now the purveyors of overunity devices typically do NOT claim to have created perpetual motion devices of the first kind.
