Tycho Brahe built instruments to measure the positions of the planets. Together they calculated the orbits of the planets. After Tycho Brahe’s death, Kepler took over his studies and was appointed Imperial Mathematician (the highest position in the field of mathematics in Europe). In 1609,
In this essay, I am going to discuss a few points to examine if wind energy is affordable, efficient, and accessible for all people. In 1887, the first wind mill was built for energy to power grain mills and water pumps. Denmark was one of the European countries that came up with this idea. In 2014, Denmark became the 6th best energy security in the world. The wind power was later designed by Professor James Blyth of Anderson’s College in Scotland.
To solve this issue, what was known as the spinning jenny was invented by Englishman James Hargreaves around 1764; it was a machine that “enabled an individual” to produce “multiple spools of threads simultaneously,” helping to further increase production and require less human energy (“Industrial Revolution” para. 5). Much later in 1785, Edmund Cartwright invented the power loom which became more widely used after 1800; this machine was a huge improvement compared to earlier machines like the aforementioned spinning jenny in that it had greater “weaving speed and efficiency,” and essentially ushered in the need for factories that could house huge machines like these powered by steam (Cleary
The first picture was named The Geocentric Universe of Ptolemy by Claudius Ptolemy in 100 CE. He was a astronomer who was living in Alexandria, Egypt that believed the Sun would rotate the Earth. His theory involved him with stating Geocentric which means “Earth-centered” .Later around 1500, Nicolaus Copernicus had the theory The Heliocentric Universe of Copernicus. Instead of the sun rotated the Earth it was the other way around, he called this Heliocentric which means “Sun-centered”. But this was only the beginning of science.
did you know that leif ericson norse explorer was the first to discover the continent of north america before columbus.the vikings used cartography to make more accurate maps for making travel easier.They also had tools such as the compass which was first used in 1345 by european sailors and just kept improving.Vikings also possessed astrolabes a device that tells you if you are north or south from the equator these were first used in 225 BC but was available in europe by the eleventh
The article of Mayan, by history, disputes that the Mayans were centered in one geographical block, this showed the Mayans remained secure by invasions by other mesoamerican villages or civilizations. The mayans weren’t just strategic to protect themselves but they also put thinking into their agriculture, pottery, hieroglyph writing, calendar-making and mathematics. The article Maya, by History, goes on to say that the mayans had a great advancement in their mathematics including the number zero, astronomy, and created the 365 days year calendar. The Mayans used the 365 days calendar for agriculture and each city- state fit the systems depending on the land.They expanded farming to highlands as much as the lowlands and farmers surrounded the cities. With the farming technique the Mayans could build prosperity cities.Each city held a population between 5,000 people, and at its peak the Mayan civilization could of reached 2,000,000 inhabitants.
The Industrial revolution was a time period where people who worked on the countryside moved into the cities to work manly in the manufacturing area. This revolution started in the UK, through out the duration of the revolution there many new inventions that influenced the modernization of Europe. Most of these inventions led to products to be produced more efficiently, other than that the use of new materials such as iron and coal was very important since these led to the later invention of the steam engine1. The steam engine is a very old way to produce electricity by using steam as its powering fluid. Thomas Savery built the first steam engine in 1698 to help minors pump out the water from the mines, however this first steam engine was
Background Information The I Ching, also known as the Book of Changes, was part of the Five Classics of Confucianism. It was supposedly invented by the legendary chinese emperor, Fuxi, who the Chinese believed created humanity, along with other accomplishments. The text is ancient and traced back to approximately 1050 BCE (which dynasty?). The I Ching was a divination method that strongly embodied the yin and yang concepts; the chinese used it to explain the metaphysical principles of the world through a system of order. [explain how it works, what trigrams are, etc) The I Ching combines destiny with numbers and patterns.
Ptolemy thought that the earth was the center of the solar system and this is how people thought the solar system looked for 14 centuries. Some of the greatest mathematicians were Euclid, Pythagoras and Archimedes. Euclid created a geometry textbook with 465 propositions and proofs about geometry titled Elements. Pythagoras invented the Pythagorean Theorem, which states that “the square of a right triangle’s hypotenuse equals the squared lengths of the two remaining sides.”(Ancient World History -------) Lastly, Archimedes, a scientist, estimated the accurate value of Pi. Most of these theories although they were not always accurate they led to further
The Norse called this dark swirling nothingness the Ginnungagap. Far south of the Ginnungagap was the fiery realm of muspell and to the north was the dark cold realm of Niflheim. The Hindus believed the beginning started with the seas being vast, deep, dark, and nonbeing.These waters, then produced a golden egg and after the golden egg hatched Prajapati came out. Early Chinese people believed the creation of the universe came from an egg that contained chaos. Out of the Chinese egg came their first god Pangu who then separated Yin and Yang which created order.
A. The invention of rockets is totally linked with the invention of 'black powder '. Most historians of technology credit the Chinese with its discovery. They form their belief on studies of Chinese writings or on the notebooks of early Europeans who settled in or made frequent visits to China to learn about its history and civilization. It is possible that, during the tenth century, black powder was first constituted from its primary ingredients of charcoal, sulphur, and saltpeter.
