A water wheel is a machine for converting the energy of flowing or falling water into useful forms of power often in a watermill A water wheel consists of a wheel (usually constructed from wood or metal) with a number of blades or buckets arranged on the outside rim forming the driving car Water wheels were still in commercial use well into the 20th century but they are no longer in common Nov 06 2015The key to generating power from a water wheel electric generator is speed This is why you need to set up two wheels for your generator The first wheel drops water onto the smaller wheel which will then turn a lot faster Just make sure you have a good supply of water available
