How does a quartz watch work?

It works by using the piezoelectric effect: if a small voltage is applied to a specially prepared crystal of quartz it vibrates at a definite and almost constant frequency whi (MORE)

How does a quartz watch works?

Quartz has the property of being piezo electric. It can bend with electricity or produce electricity by bending. Cutting a quartz crytal to precise dimensions will allow it it (MORE)

Why is quartz good for working watches and other electronic machines?

Quartz is a piezoelectric material. This means that it vibrates when current is passed through it. It also means that when it is vibrated or put under pressure, it generates c (MORE)
