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 ]

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.

Developing an Engine that Repurposes Waste Energy - ... The second law is that it is impossible to create an engine that all of the heat can be converted to work because there must be some expelled heat for the engine to function. There is also the idea of the carnot efficiency that also must be discussed. Carnot efficiency is the efficiency that is the maximum of an engine. That doesn’t necessarily mean 100%. The Carnot efficiency of an average car is 58.5%, which sounds pretty low and the actual efficiency of 30-45% is even worse. There are many places where things could be fixed, including but not even close to limiting the friction, the energy required to ignite the engine, the driver’s habits, weight, aerodynamics, and the fuel itself....   [tags: heat, efficiency, thermodynamics] 701 words

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]
