Hi all!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm finding information about the ancient time counting machine --- water clock, as shown in the figure.

I know that the water clock invented by Ktesibios has a self-regulating ability. This is achieved by a float.

Anyone got more information about the mathematics involved?
