This is whywhy would it be anything other than 3600 bph?
beats seconds, 60 seconds per minute x 60 minutes an hour
More mercury would raise the center of Gravity - yes?Tea,
I figured as much.
Sometimes using a beat setter can be
misleading and very time consuming. It can be sort of like putting blinders on.
More mercury could be your answer but I would probably try something simple to see exactly what is needed. Like a 1/2" spacer above the rating nut, or a much shorter suspension spring, if possible.
Maybe someone will post a photo of an unbothered pendulum that you can judge the mercury height by ...
Good luck, Willie X
Yes adding more mercury will have the effect of shortening the effective length of the pendulum. (provided the added mercury sits above the current centre of gravity of the pendulum)I got the Mercury I need.
Just to make sure we are on the same pages.
---I AM GOING TO ADD ABOUT 3/8" TO EACH VIAL---
And it should Speed up the clock (Increase the BPR) Raise the center of Gravity.
IS THAT RIGHT ??
