    Does magnets posses free energy?
    Does the machine shown in image will run?

    If no....give reason...

    I know it seems to voilate 1st law of thermodaynamics...But why it voilates it???

    No it won't work.

    Reason: magnets don't possess energy. At best they act like springs; providing a force but only if you push first.:smile:

    Perpetual motion is a myth that probably will never die.

    First of all you'll need a perfect vacuum.

    Secondly you'll need perfect bearings to mount the spindle onto.

    Thirdly think about what happens when the magnets that are on the rotating arms line up with the stationary magnets around the outside.
