Many of you have often wondered how do hand’ clocks work, so today we decided to look into how they actually function to help better inform you on this topic. A clock conventionally uses the energy from an energy source which then uses the energy to move the hands of the clock at the same pace at same time-intervals.
- Energy starts off from a power source which is usually in the form of a battery.
- The energy then makes the quartz crystal vibrate.
- These vibrations are converted into electric pulses at the recognizable speed of 1 every second.
- This then turns into mechanical power and moves the gears which then go on to move the hour and second hand as we know it
