The History Of Telling Time

The history of telling time is a long and fascinating one. It began with the ancient Egyptians, who developed the sundial around 3500 BC. The sundial was a simple device that used the sun's rays to mark the hours. Other ancient civilizations, such as the Babylonians, Greeks, and Romans, also developed their own methods of telling time.

In the 14th century, the mechanical clock was invented. The first mechanical clocks were large and inaccurate, but they gradually improved over time. By the 17th century, mechanical clocks were accurate enough to be used for navigation. In the 19th century, the electric clock was invented. Electric clocks were more accurate than mechanical clocks, and they could be used in a wider variety of applications.

In the 20th century, the quartz clock was invented. Quartz clocks are the most accurate type of clock, and they are used in a wide variety of applications, including computers, cell phones, and satellites.

The Science Of Telling Time

The science of telling time is based on the concept of a day. A day is the time it takes for the Earth to rotate once on its axis. Days are divided into 24 hours. Each hour is divided into 60 minutes. Each minute is divided into 60 seconds.
