A Device that can Produce Net Impulse Using Rotating Masses

  title={A Device that can Produce Net Impulse Using Rotating Masses},
  author={Christopher G. Provatidis},
This paper describes a device capable of producing net impulse, through two synchronized masses, which move along a figure-eight-shaped orbit. In addition to the detailed description of the mechanical components of this device, particular attention is paid to the theoretical treatment of the innovative principle on which the device is based. In more details, the mechanical system consists of two independent but simultaneous rotations, the former being related to the formation of the figure… CONTINUE READING
