A Medieval Clock Made out of Simple Materials
Danese, B.; Oss, S.
European Journal of Physics, v29 n4 p799-814 Jul 2008
A cheap replica of the verge-and-foliot clock has been built from simple materials. It is a didactic tool of great power for physics teaching at every stage of schooling, in particular at university level. An account is given of its construction and its working principles, together with motivated examples of a few activities. (Contains 3 tables and 10 figures.)
