    theres an inverted triangle that has in the top a big circle pulley to which is connected a hanging small pulley

    when the system falls is equivalent to the big pulley rotating, and that makes rotate the hanging small pulley that holds a weight

    but for evey 10 the big pulley spins as it falls the small pulley spins 40

    taking this into account if it falls over the weight will raise

    so it just shouldnt fall or the cog will raise

    All that will happen is that it will fall over with all the parts staying in line with each other. The weight will not rise nor will it be stable.

    yes actually im not very convinced it will not fall over

    but what i dont know is how it will fall

    check out this almost identical case, i think in my question there should happen soemthing in the midle of the two options:

    your argument has giving me this idea for an scientific sculture, if you are right it should work i think, is a matter of potential energy

    nice to know the laws of physics prevail

    but seriously, thank you for posting the results of the experiment. I wish more people who ask easily-experimentable questions would post their actual results. Its good practice
