      You can see linear motion. It is different. I apply force on second slider using first slider.First slider is not moving exactly with the second slider. First slider moves little bit and help to move second slider 6 times length at 70 % force. You can find detail research description and videos at http://mechanicalresearch.info/

      Hi Jigar,

      I am sorry to tell you that you haven't "developed" anything new - or revolutionary - let me explain by giving you a simple example.

      If you take a simple chain drive - with lets say 10 teeth on the driving sprocket (and an input torque of 50Nm @ 60 revs per minute) - and lets say 20 teeth on the driven sprocket. Lets assume a chain drive efficiency of 90%.

      Then we have:-

      Input power = 50 (Nm) x (60 x 2 x pi / 60)(rads/s) = 314 Watts

      Output torque = 50(Nm) x (20 / 10) x 0.9 (efficiency) = 90 Nm

      Output speed = 60(rpm) / (20 / 10) = 30 rpm

      Output power = 90 (Nm) x (30 x 2 x pi /60)(rads/s) = 282.6 Watts

      So as you can see above - the output power is 90% of the input power.

      What you have done - is worked out that you have a mechanism that gives you torque multiplication (just like the chain drive above gives you torque multiplication) - but that doesn't give you a system that gives you more power out - as illustrated above.

      The bottom line is simple (which you should remember from university) - which is the conservation of energy principle - which in simple terms means you can't get more energy out than you put in.

      Hope this helps.
