Force and Speed!!.......
- Simple water wheels use the effect of gravity on the weight of the water in the buckets. The power is determined by the height that the water falls (wheel diameter) and the weight of water falling in a given time (flow volume). This has nothing to do with "increasing the speed of the water ... so that it would have adequate force to turn the mill". The article is quite wrong in this respect. 126.96.36.199 (talk) mikeL 04 05 10 —Preceding undated comment added 10:12, 4 May 2010 (UTC).
