The Steam Engine - As of the present, technology advances exponentially as compared to three hundred years ago. Consequently, the question asked is how this rapid method of advancement in technology and science came about. It definitely did commence slowly. Most of the protracted infringement to scientific and technological progress was due to theological beliefs and political incompetents. It was only after the Protestant Reformation that significant progress was finally attained; it still progressed slowly. Many individuals would conclude that the defining moments were when Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz made important contributions to the field of mathematics through discoveries in Calculus....   [tags: Technology ]

The Steam Engine - Using steaming water to generate motorized movement has its history back from 2,000 years ago. The steam engine is a mechanism that executes motorized exertions by means of heat as its operating fluids. In common procedure, steam engines are the incorporated steam deposits like the transportable engines and railway steam engines, or could denote a mechanism single-handedly, as in stationary and beam steam engines [Benford, et. al, 2005]. Particular mechanisms like steam pile drivers and hammers are reliant on steams provided by disconnected boilers....   [tags: Engineering ]

Steam has one great advantage over water-it expands in volume with tremendous velocity. To be the most effective, a steam turbine must run at a very high speed. No wheel made can revolve at any speed approaching the velocity that a steam turbine can. By utilizing the kinetic energy of steam flow, the turbine could achieve a higher efficiency.

The Carnot efficiency of an average car is 58.5%, which sounds pretty low and the actual efficiency of 30-45% is even worse.

Railway Electrification: In the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time - The Baltimore & Ohio railroad (B&O) was the first railroad to electrify part of its tracks, doing so in 1895 (Lecture Notes, 2/19/14). The electric locomotive was faster and cheaper than the steam locomotive, and produced no smoke (Lecture Notes, 2/19/14). This opened up the gates for electric locomotives to replace steam engines on their own tracks. Still, only a few American railroads electrified their lines between 1900 and 1950. Many American railroads failed to electrify their railroads due to the high initial cost and economic conditions, the lack of standardized electrical systems used for the railways, and corporate resistance (Bezilla, 42-47)....   [tags: Steam Railoads, Electric Traction, Railroad Tracks]
