Experiment # 2.1

This experiment serves to set the baseline speed/torque requirements to produce a minmal amount of effect. The two wheels are operating within 10 RPM of each other. Having gradually increased the output power of the prototype of the Relativistic Machine to this level, we can now calibrate the device using this information.

As it is, the device outputs ~5% of its power. Even at such a low level of output, the wheels -which account for less than a quarter of the weight- already have a strong destabilizing effect on the Y-axis of the prototype.

Subsequent experiments will ratchet up the power to record any change in the behavior of the prototype.
