    new tank tread.jpgA tank tread being turned by it's wheels and a rectangular block attached to it that is the size of the radius of one of the wheels horizonally.If it goes around with the tank tread and the tank tread is going 50 miles per hour,On the straight part it would be going 50 miles per hour and when it is top of one the wheels it would be going 100 miles per hour at the outer edge of the rectangular block.Then when it returns to the straight part of the tank tread it would go back to 50 miles per hour.Where did the energy go.
