Caption: Water wheel. 16th century cut-away diagram of a water wheel used to drive water pumps. The water wheel (at bottom left) powers four piston suction pumps (at lower right) by means of cogs. The pumps are used to pump water from a stream up into an aqueduct. Image taken from Le Diverse et Artificiose Machine (1588) by Agostino Ramelli.
