A Fibonacci Motor
Guests: Doug Sharp, Derek Marshall, Mert Pekrul
Description: The Fibonacci sequence is found throughout scripture and nature. It is where you start with 1, add 1 to get 2, add 1 & 2 to get 3, 2 & 3 to get 5 and so forth. It expands as follows:
1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89 and so on.
Plotted on polar coordinates, you get a spiral, and that spiral pattern is evidence throughout nature.Mert Pekrul has invented a motor that uses the fibonacci pattern as a mechanism to efficiently harness steam power in a compact engine. Derek Marshall interviews Mert and reveals how this engine works.
