Fitzpatrick The Renaissance and Enlightenment Era What Was Life Like? Inventions: The Voltaic
Pile a.k.a The First Battery Renaissance
Enlightenment Age Videos Family Life The main goal of marriage was to produce children. It is thought that people of the Renaissance married early.
Most common folks married in their mid twenties. Since the average life expectancy was 40, few people made it to grandparent status. Family Life This era lasted from 1400 to 1750. It is thought hat people of the Renaissance Era married early. But many "common folks" married in their mid twenties. The average life expectancy was 40, which is why there were very few people who were able to become
grandparents.

Based on how extravagant the clothing was the wealthier you were. Fashion was important to Renaissance Period not for just women but men as well. http://www.renaissance-period.org.uk/ http://dictionary.die.net/voltaic%20battery The First Compact Microscope http://www.history-of-the-microscope.org/images/first-optical-microscope1.jpg Alessandro Volta invented the voltaic battery in 1799. The
Battery consists of a number of voltaic cells arranged in a
parallel series. Alessandro Volta's voltaic pile was the first battery that
produced a reliable, steady current of electricity. Which means that everything from Automobiles, LapTops, and portable game devices wouldn't be able to function without batteries, so (hypothetically) they wouldn't even exist without Volta's invention. How The Invetion of the Voltaic Pile Affected Society The unit of measurement for Electricity is "Volts" which is named for Alessandro Volta. In the 1590's, there were two Dutch spectacle makers, Zacharias Jansen and his father Hans. What started out as just experimenting with these lenses, led to an important invention.

Their first microscopes were not exactly considered a scientific tool since maximum magnification was only around 9x in addition to the images were somewhat blurry. Because of this invention technological advances have brought multiple new types of microscopes, Microscopes help us learn about food safety and cleanliness. Microscopes have greatly contributed to the advancements in modern medication. Impact on Way of Life About The Microscope http://www.history-of-the-microscope.org/history-of-the-microscope-who-invented-the-microscope.php http://hunter.photogalaxy.net/2011/08/19/first-microscope/ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA0VU0AE9988 http://www.prepaidphonedistributor.com/Join-Solavei.html Sir John Harington designed the something of relation to the modern day toilet in 1596. The design had a flush valve that let water out of the tank, and had a wash-down design that emptied the bowl. He installed one for his godmother Queen Elizabeth I at Richmond Palace. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flush_toilet How The Invention of The Toilet Improved Our Way Of Life How the invention of the toilet improved our lives is pretty point blank.We have a sanitary method of getting rid of bodily waste, that doesn't involve having to keep dig holes. In America there are certain diseases that we no longer have to worry about like diphtheria. The Toilet http://www.historytoday.com/richard-cavendish/death-sir-john-harington The Invention of the Toilet Inventions in the
1600's - Cornelis Drebbel was the Dutch inventor of the first navigable submarine in 1620.
- Submarines are used for the Military as well as commercial:
Nuclear deterrents
Keeping the sea lanes open
Defending our surface ships from other submarines
Ocean bottom mapping
Salvage and rescue
Oceanographic research The First Submarine Blood Transfusion Jean-Baptiste Denys invents a method for blood transfusion in 1625 Because of this invetnion people who lose extreme amounts of blood due to trauma or have haemophilia have a chance to survive. Torricelli built the first mercury barometer around 1644. Evangelista Torricelli became the first scientist to create a sustained vacuum. . Torricelli realized that the variation of the height of the mercury from day to day was caused by changes in the atmospheric pressure which was the discovery of the principle of a barometer. The Barometer During the 17th century, a German physicist and engineer Otto von Guericke experimented with and improved air compressors. In 1650, Guericke invented the first air pump. It could produce a partial vacuum and Guericke used it to study the phenomenon of vacuum and the role of air in combustion and respiration. Inventions From
1700 to 1750 The first modern thermometer, the mercury thermometer with a standardized scale, was invented by Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit in 1714.
This invention improve society because we can now know our body temperatures as well as the temperature of outside. In 1742, the Celsius scale was invented by a Swedish Astronomer Anders Celsius.
- The Celsius scale has 100 degrees between the freezing point (0°C) and boiling point (100°C) of pure water at sea level air pressure.
-The term "Celsius" was adopted in 1948 by an international conference on weights and measures. The Celsius Scale The First Modern Thermometer http://www.factmonster.com/images/ap195i2.gif http://www.timetoast.com/timelines/32751 The first automatic fire extinguisher was invented by English chemist Ambrose Godfrey in 1723. Fuses within the device created a small explosion of gunpowder in the event of a fire. This explosion spread water into the air to extinguish the flames.

This has affected society because now we don't have to go to a well or call the fire department whenever a small flame ignites. First Fire Extinguisher http://images02.olx.com/ui/1/42/93/41423993_1.jpg The Invention of the Air Pump The Invention of the Piano The Innovation of the Piano The piano was invented in 1709 (probably slightly before) by Bartolomeo Cristofori, an Italian harpsichord maker. Germany's Andreas Stein and Johann Silberman made further improvements, including larger frames,and more refined actions. Then in England the Broadwood Company introduced the foot pedal (the pedal was previously controlled by the knee), and partial metal frame. http://hum.lss.wisc.edu/welbourne/201web/history.htm http://nursingcourses.files.wordpress.com/2007/10/blood.JPG
