A tabletop waterwheel, designed and built by Prof. Willem Malkus (Math. Dept., MIT), is used to demonstrate chaos in a mechanical analog of the Lorenz equations. The waterwheel’s rotational damping rate can be adjusted by tightening or loosening a brake. When the brake is not too tight, the wheel settles into a steady rotation. Either direction of rotation is possible. When the brake was tightened in an attempt to make the wheel go chaotic, unfortunately it was tightened too much. Instead of… CONTINUE READING
