7 Developing the Foot from the Pendulum

Although the foot was derived from a cable of 360 or 366 pendulum lengths, it can be  develpoed without measuring out such a long length as follows :

 

Mesopotanian Pendulum length = 994 mm : Foot = 333 mm

1 by measurement   ——— 3 feet =  2 cubits  + 3/10 fingers

2 by measurement ——-  18 feet = 1 rod

3 pendulum length = 1 rod  when 98 beats in 1 gesh (240 seconds)

 

Chinese Market Ft  Pendulum length = 441.61 mm  Ft = 318 mm

1 by measurement   — 5 feet = ( 3 + 1/2 +1/10 ) Pendulum lengths

2 by measurement ——- 50 feet = 36 pendulum lengths

3 or the  pendulum length  is 8 feet when 150  beats in 240.0 sec

 

Egyptian Pendulum length = 410.385 mm   Foot = 300 mm

1 by measurement  3 feet = ( 2 + 1/5 + 1/250 ) pendulum lengths

2 by measurement  1000 feet = 366 pendulum lengths

3  pendulum length  is 8 feet when  605  beats =  4/366 Star day

 

Minoan Pendulum Length = 414.75 mm   Foot = 303.6 mm

1 by measurement   ——— 8 feet = ( 5 + 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/00 )P

2 by measurement —— 1000 feet = 366 pendulum lengths

3  pendulum length  is 8 feet when 605  beats =  4/366 Venus day

 

Greek “Attic” Pendulum Length = 428.546 mm   Foot = 308.55 mm

1 by measurement  8 feet = (5 + 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/00 )Pendulum legths

2 by measurement  50 feet = 36 Pendulum lengths

3  pendulum length  is 8 feet when 150  beats =  1/366 Venus day

4  pendulum length  is 50 feet when 60  beats =  1/366 Venus day )
