Bells were, therefore, associated with clocks in those early days of mechanical timekeeping. In fact, even before mechanical clocks existed, churches and monasteries rang bells to tell the common folk that it was time for prayers. The devout would stop all their activities, to say their prayers. Some of these prayers for which bells were rung were called sexts and nones. These terms were taken from Latin, and meant the sixth hour and the ninth hour, when prayers were said. So the ringing of prayer bells also indicated the time.

This too took the same amount of time to swing to and fro, in a regular motion. Galileo thought hard. His experiment confirmed that the time taken for one swing remained the same, regardless of the weight attached. However, the time taken for the pendulum to swing did vary according to the length of the string. Galileo, who later went on to study mathematics and become a famous scientist, had discovered the laws of the pendulum.
