I would like to findout what speed and HP I could get from a kind of water wheel.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The unit will have a gear on top and a gear on the bottem

I have over 120 cubic foot of water a second flow to play with.

the containers of water will fill and lower on drive chains and rails

They will loop around at the bottem and drainand go back up

The drop is 20 feet down no angles bot the flip over at the top and bottem lets say a 5 foot gear and no force from the water flow is added

I will have 7440 pounds of water what is the best hp I could pul from a system like that

Think of a water fall and bolting on a water system right on flat to the wall
