Thomas Edison began creating electric systems which marked the beginning of the age of electricity (Bellis para 15). In order to make a power station, Edison’s power station had four essential elements: a central generation that is reliable, effective distribution, a triumphant final use, and a decent asking price (Bellis para 16). Edison’s first incandescent systems, however, had complications; they were being used in celebrated occasions like the “Paris Lighting Exhibition” and the “Crystal Palace” located in London (“Thomas”... History para 8). In 1880, Edison embarked to create a company that could give electricity to light and power cities of the globe (“Thomas”... Biography para 17).
I have no prior knowledge about Hybrid cars but once I heard about an electric car produced by Tesla and it made me very curious to know more about the topic I have done research on the Internet. In my speech today I am going to speak about the Development of hybrid vehicles. Innovations and Configurations in the Hybrid Vehicles have significant impacts on the environment. First, I will give a brief description about the Hybrid Vehicles and follow it up by discussing the Innovations and Configurations in Hybrid Vehicles and finally, discuss the Environmental impacts of hybrid vehicles. A hybrid vehicle is a vehicle that uses two or more power sources for its functioning.
Robert Fulton was an American engineer who created the first successful commercial steamboat, called the North River Steamboat. His steamboat was later called the Clermont. This steamboat was able to carry passengers between New York City and Albany. Fulton also designed the world's first steam powered warship. Robert Fulton was born on the 14th of November, 1765.
In addition to electricity, Tesla experimented with radio waves and much of Guglielmo Marconi’s, inventor of the radio, work was based off of Tesla’s research. Throughout his life, Tesla was granted 111 U.S. patents and every electrical appliance today uses at least one of Tesla’s inventions. In addition to how Tesla affected the world, Einstein left his mark on America’s technology and inventions. One major invention Einstein contributed to was the atomic bomb. The invention of the atomic bomb was a turning point in World War 2 when they dropped the bombs on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The biggest advance Franklin made was discovering that lighting was electricity (“Benjamin Franklin Biography”). This lead to the inventions of batteries and the electric motor. Franklin was also a notable person civically. Franklin was a member of Philadelphia’s city council in 1748 and a justice of the peace the next year. In 1751, Franklin got elected to be a Philadelphia alderman and a representative to the Pennsylvania Assembly.
A piece of evidence is when he finished the power generators for New York “Within a few years the numbers of generators at Niagara falls reached the planned ten, and power lines were electrifying New York.”This explains that he had a good legacy and good intentions for the world. His legacy also includes his research for making electrical current go in the air “But these discoveries in 1890, when he illuminated a vacuum tube wirelessly-having transmitted energy through the air.” That also explains how his legacy went on and finding new ways for electricity to travel. Nikola Tesla’s legacy also when on when he tried to create a death beam “Tesla stated that the death beam would make war impossible by offering every country an invisible Chinese wall.” That explains how Nikola Tesla’s legacy went on helping us all. That also explains how Nikola Tesla’s legacy, accomplishments, and courageous acts. In conclusion, Nikola Tesla was very influential in life.
He sold them all to George Westinghouse. His most famed invention the “Tesla Coil” was created in 1891. The Tesla Coil nowadays is mainly used in Radio Technology. Nikola Tesla died in New York City on January 7, 1943. Early Life Nikola Tesla the famed Serbian-American inventor
Albert Einstein is known to be responsible for a scientific discovery that changed the world forever. Energy is equal to mass multiplied by the speed of light squared. This equation has changed the world in many ways by teaching us how mass and energy are related as well as mass is converted to total energy. It all began in the early 1800s when scientists thought of mostly forces instead of energy. This movie summarized the story of how the equation E= mc^2 was created, along with many other scientific discoveries.
Santorio was a close friend of Galileo who had received the blueprints from Galileo himself. In order to make Galileo’s thermoscope into a thermometer Santorio added a scale so that the precise temperature would be indicated by the bulb slightly below the bulbs on top. In conclusion, I believe that the first thermometer has impacted society by helping it become more efficient and useful also the Galileo thermometer would make a whole new world for new
Introduction to Physics Lab (ZBT1) Electromagnetic Induction Marc Westover C164 ZBT1 Task 2 Professor Taha Mzoughi 03/14/2017 Introduction This experiment describes a physics lab on electromagnetic induction. It will test if coils of looped wire produce an electric current and if the number of coils makes a difference in a reading. The testing of electromagnetic induction goes back to 1831 with experiments conducted by Michael Faraday. His experiment led to one of the “basic laws of electromagnetism called Faraday’s Law of Electromagnetic Induction.” (electrical4u.com) English physicist Faraday discovered electromagnetic induction which deduced “the working principle of most of the electrical motors, generators, electrical transformers and inductors.” (electrical4u.com)
When the magnetic compass points north, it pointed to the magnetic North Pole, which is one of the two most magnetic spots on planet earth. The magnetic compass were introduced to Europe in 960 AD. However, It was mentioned first in the book The Dream Pool Essays by Shen Kuo. Early European magnetic compasses were made with a magnetized needle put perpendicularly in a straw that then floated upwards in a bowl of water (Goddard 81). Printing was first introduced in China in 100 A.D.
Franklin found that conductors with a sharp point could discharge electricity silently to far greater distance. He began his analysis of the Leyden jar in 1746 and discovered many theories. The jar was the first ever condenser or a capacitor which could store charge in it. It consisted of the glass bottle placed between two conductors and the inner water, connected by a wire to a metal rod. He stated the facts about the jar.
