Another great advantage of cannons is that they could be shot from far away and still generate the same destruction. Chinese emperors tried their best to keep the incredible invention a secret. Meanwhile, around the 1100’s, the secret was revealed. It reached Japan, Islam, and then Europe. Unfortunately, West Africa was defeated by Europe in the 1400’s because they had not heard about the discovery of gunpowder yet.
Sudan like any colonized country suffered from a lot of good effects and bad side effects some of them were short term impact and some are long term impact. European countries had a huge technological gap between them and between the colonized countries, which was a huge advantage. They had way more advanced weaponry. For example Britain had guns and tanks on the other side Sudan had spears,
Unit 7 is a rather long section covering both Rome and China 's powerful and expansive empires during the time period 300 BCE - 300 CE. The Han Dynasty and Imperial Rome were very similar in their unprecedented scale and duration. Although they did operate in differing ways, for example, Rome relied on slaves to expand its workforce, while the Chinese 's economy lived off of free peasant farmers. The Chinese benefited from having an overwhelming population that would benefit the bureaucracy and supply political stability for the Hans. When it came to the Roman Empire, religion did not have the same impact that Confucianism had on the dynasties in China.
As written in Doc. 1 by a Han government official, China searched for ways to apply their technologies in the most efficient way possible, without much labor, and to benefit the laborers as well. Doc. 4 from a history book sponsored by the Han government, states that China aimed to make work easier for the laborers, to increase the efficiency. Both documents show Han China in a bright light, and that may be because they are written or sponsored by Han government officials.
By taking large ships, maybe He was trying to intimidate other empires. Zheng he could have tried to intimidate other empires to elevate China’s status and put other empires under them. By doing that, the empires that traded with China could have felt threatened, which would be good for the Chinese empire because they would become globally known as a strong empire and no one would dare to attack them. If we look at the aftermath of Zheng He’s trade voyages, many countries, especially the North and Southeast Asian countries, started paying tribute to China (Beck). This means that if this was the purpose of his trade voyages, then Zheng He succeeded in his mission.
Both of them faced the issue of social stratification, but they dealt with the situation differently. The Han dynasty had a strong belief that if technology was widely available, it would benefit the entire Chinese empire. They felt responsible to make it available for the workers and laborers that lived in China. On the other hand, Roman philosophy and administration considered laborers to be low-class, and not deserving of the help of intellectuals in government. The first group of documents were all from Han Dynasty
The Mongols had traded for centuries with border posts and had recieved gifts and money from Chinese courts (Document I). With this said, this meant that the Mongols weren’t completely barbaric as they were described to be. If they could maintain trade with other countries it meant they weren’t bloodthirsty and crazy. Mongols built canals to improve transportation and communication (Document J). This meant that Mongols cared for more than just conquering and destroying cities, that they were actually civilized.
Which influenced quite a few of our known weapons today. Gunpowder is still being used and improved in many ways and leaves a devastating effect on many areas of the world. The Chinese have invented many useful inventions, but gunpowder is the one invention that changed society and caused new perspectives to
Not to mention they were an easy scapegoat for the problems America faced. If it was an economic crisis, the Chinese were easy targets, and the hate would just build and build towards them. Apart from blacks, I don’t think there has been so much hate that the government of America decides to stop immigration flow from China, and
It has been debated if Hitler or the Allied forces started World War II. The Allied forces started World War II because they could have stopped Hitler. The Allied forces were made up of Great Britain, France, the Soviet Union, the United States, and China. They allowed Hitler get away with more than he should have been able to. Hitler disobeyed the Treaty of Versailles, and was allowed to succeed at the Munich Conference.
The Mongols did not trust the Chinese, so they had foreigners come in to govern the people. They took away the traditional Confucian way of government. In the Middle East, the Mongols took the highest positions, but gave the lower positions to the people showing that there was more trust. The Mongols didn 't disrupt the original government, instead they used it to their advantage. Mongols
Perhaps the two most important civilizations, Rome and Han China both fell due to major similarities. At the same time, Rome and Han China fell due to distinct differences as well. Furthermore, the collapse of China and Rome had far more similarities rather than differences. During 200 and 600 BCE both classical civilizations suffered from outside invasions; growing from Central Asia. They were not as sweeping as earlier Indo-European growth but tested Rome and China severely.
Because it shouldn’t break during the operation. When the material is cast iron then the tool should be even stronger than the material. For cast iron, a single point cutting tool of high speed steel and carbon steels should be used for this. There are cutting tools that are even stronger and powerful but the purpose of those is to cut even stronger materials. So in Cast iron, carbon steel and high speed steels are the perfect tools for the purpose of facing and turning operations.
Steel is more costly than e.g. wood which could have been used but it is longer lasting and is one of the strongest construction materials. It is a lot more fire resistant than wood as it melts at 1370 degrees Celsius while wood burns at 450 Celsius. Although more costly to install as it requires specialist equipment than wood which is a lot easier to install than steel and requires a less skilled labourer. Also steel isn’t renewable while wood is but wood requires more maintenance due to the different ways it is attacked.
