The clock is one of the oldest human inventions. Clocks are one of the very first complex machines created by humans. Initially they all had pendulums and gears. This is a typical way one can define a clock. The clock requires a physical process that will proceed at a known rate which is a way to gauge how long that process has run. Now since the seasons and the phases of the moon can be used to measure the passage of longer periods of time, shorter processes had to be used to measure off hours and minutes. This is where the clock comes into the picture. Clocks are one of the very first complex machines created by humans. Initially they all had pendulums and gears, but now they come in many different forms. You can find time pieces from quartz watches to atomic clocks!
