Description:
Motion is given to the wheel by the force of water striking against the buckets at the top of wheel, and also by the weight of the water in the buckets as they rotate downward. [Virginia Downward & William M. Clark, 1930] [Editorís Note: This model was designed after the illustration in Brown's 1868 catalog of mechanical movements, Figure 430 on page 104. There is evidence that the overshot water wheel was described by the ancient Greeks. FCM]
