Pendulum Watch


Best Answer TimeSpaceLightForce, 07 June 2014 - 04:36 PM

Thanks for  noticing Bonanova. I see that point clearly . With Excel I tried to pull the green line nearer to next  mark (nearer to six) but the it always snaps back to center. However, your solution is the solution.. When we add the AM time with its same position on PM time it is 12:00:00.. twice on a position per day.

If the time is 08:32:26 AM it is true time.

It is 12MN when  all the hands of this unusual watch rotates clockwise at proper speeds. 
But all the hands runs in opposite direction when they strike 12..like a pendulum.
What is the real time if it reads false as shown below ?

Is it correct to conclude

  1. The hands begin rotating CW, all pointing at 12, at midnight
  2. Each hand reverses direction each time it approaches 12, from either direction
  3. The clock may have been running for an arbitrarily long time when the photograph was taken
