How does one make a pendulum clock?

Answer

A pendulum clock is a clock that was invented in 1656 by Christiaan Huygens that uses a pendulum (a swinging weight), as its timekeeping element. The clock is normally made up of a long, thin rod made of wood or metal that terminates in a disk. These types of clock must be placed in a stationary position because any motion or accelerations will affect the motion of the pendulum, causing inaccuracies in the timekeeping.
