Intelligence of an ancient windmill to produce flour

A windmill is a machine that, by obtaining energy from the wind, crushes grains in order to turn them into flour.


Its purpose is to reduce the grains to powder, in other words, to turn them into flour.

Its active function is based on capturing wind energy (eolic energy) using blades and converting it into mechanical energy.

Its energy conservation function involves using mechanical energy to generate friction between two stones and crush the grains into flour.

The binary actions of the process are, on the one hand, the use of wind energy to produce mechanical energy and, on the other hand, the application of mechanical energy to grind the grains between two rotating stones.
