The pendulum clock is the clock in which the time display system is operated with the help of a pendulum. It was invented in 1857 by Christian Huygens. Since then, it was the purest time-consuming system in the world until about 1930. Nowadays they are used as decorative items and antiquities.
A pendulum clock is virtually a resonant device that oscillates at a fixed rate according to its length and opposes oscillation at another rate. But it is only suitable for working in a steady-state. In a moving and accelerating thing, it will not be able to tell the right time.

Christiania Huygens, (14 April 1629 - 8 July 1695) was a prominent Dutch mathematician and natural philosopher. He is particularly known as an astronomer, physicist, indecisive, and time scientist. He was born in The Hague on April 14, 1829. He got his initial education from your worthy father, then you got an education in Lyde. He was inspired Galileo.
