can we make a chiming clock?
an attempt to make a chiming clock, we constructed a water
clock as we couldn't think of a way of making a chiming clock
out of a sundial.
placed a huge barrel at a height of about three meters (10 feet) and a second
large barrel lower down. Size was important the bigger the barrel,
the higher the volume of water and the more power to make a big
noise. For the clock to be accurate, we need a constant flow of
water. But drilling a hole in the higher barrel and allowing the
water to flow freely wouldn't work because as the water level drops
so too does the water pressure.
