A clock can be thought of as anything that oscillates with a known and stable frequency, and is able to count its oscillations. Multivibrators are examples of such a device. Multivibrators resonate with a calculable resonant frequency, and this frequency is stable enough to be a standard by which time is kept. Though we assume clocks to be perfect timekeepers, however, this is not the case. Clocks not only have hardware imperfections, they are also susceptible to environmental noises---the combined effects of which leads to variations in timekeeping. This project will aim to explore and characterize the impact of environmental noises on the timekeeping ability of the multivibrator.
