Transcript of Clocks
The invention of the clock
It is hard to say who exactly made the very first clock. However, we do know that Christian Huygens made the first pendulum clock in 1656. His clock was off only about one minute per day.
How is the clock used?
Impact of the Clock
The clock has given us a lot of positive things. It allows us a standard way to tell time that we can all understand. It also allows us to meet at set times and know when we can do things.
The clock does have at least one downside though. Consistently waking up to alarm clocks can raise blood pressure and heart rate.
The clock has been used to tell and measure time since it was invented. It is used in every day life and there is almost always some type of clock around you.
