In this setup, visitors can examine the motion of a ball thanks to simple machines. One of the important inventions of Archimedes in the Ball Machine is the Archimedes’ screw, which is also known by his name. Archimedes’ screw has been used for transferring water from a low-lying body of water into irrigation ditches since ancient times, but it is used to lift a ball instead of water to higher levels in the Ball Machine. The rotation of the device causes the ball to rise in the pipe and visitors can observe the motion of the ball thanks to simple machines such as Archimedes’ screw, gears and coghwheels in accordance with laws of physics.
