Water Clocks

Motion and Time of Class 7

The water clock appears to have been invented about 1,500 BC and was a device which relied on the steady flow of water from or into a container. Measurements could be marked on the container or on a container for the water. In comparison with the candle or the oil lamp, the clepsydra was more reliable, but the water flow still depended on the variation of pressure from the head of water in the container.
