Transcript of New Scientific Discoveries during the Industrial Revolution

-Scientific Discoveries Steel and Electricity The Telegraph, Telephone
and Radio A VIDEO ON THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION Major breakthroughs also took place in transportation. The internal combustion engines, invented by Rudolph Diesel and Gottlieb Daimler, produced a lot of power by burning oil-based fuels. Within a few decades internal combustion engines powered boats. They also made two other forms of transportation possible: the car and the airplane. In 1903 two American inventors, Orville and Wilbur Wright, successfully tested the worlds first powered airplane. As the 1800' continued, many scientific discoveries helped to keep the Industrial Revolution going. Iron was replaced by steel. Starting in the 1870's steel became the leading industrial metal. Other inventions made use of electricity. Electricity could be converted easily to heat, light, or motion, and could be sent through wires. One important invention that used electricity was the telegraph, invented by Samuel Morse in the 1830's. The telegraph made communication possible across great distances by sending coded messages through wires. Other communications advances were the telephone, invented by Alexander Graham Bell in 1876, and the radio, developed by Guglielmo Marconi, in 1895. In 1831 Michael Faraday discovered that a magnet moving through a coil of copper wire produced an electric current. Within 40 years, this discovery led to the invention of electric generators. Thomas Edison developed the lightbulb, which used electricity to create light. As demand for electricity rose, investors in Europe and the U.S. funded the first power plants. These were powered by coal or oil.
