Print This is an airscrew invented by Leonardo da Vinci This is a telescope invented by Guillaume Cassegrain This is a printing press A glider invented by Leonardo Da Vinci What technological were made advances Renaissance? The clock was a way to keep time in the 1300’s as it is now. The clock of the 1300s was a water wheel because this was the only way of energy that they had then. The mechanical clock was first invented in 1364 by an Italian clockmaker by the name of Giovanni di Dondi. The pencil was made when a huge black graphite mine was found. The pure graphite was sawn into sheets then it was cut into rods and then were put into hand cut wooden rods. When it was first made people were mistaken that it contained lead when it doesn’t contain any lead at all. Now people are still calling it lead even when it is lead free. The barometer was designed in 1643. The barometer measures the weight of the column of air that goes from the bottom of the barometer to the top of the atmosphere. The two types of barometers that of used are mercury and aneroid, meaning fluid less’. The anemometer was made in 1450 that could measure wind speed and airflow.
The thermometer was a bit of water in a glass bulb. Then water moved up and down as the temperature changed. They can use mercury now. Bibliography The technological advances of the Renaissance were revolutionary because and practical ones, which were signs of the rebirth of culture. of Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo, and many others’ inventions, both dreamy We have talked about inventions throughout the year because it is a major part of life. We have talked about Chinese inventions and medieval inventions and the Islamic inventions and African Inventions. Leonardo da Vinci was more of an all around person, which describes a lot of how the Renaissance was. Every other time in history people have excelled in one thing or another, but few have excelled like Leonardo da Vinci. However like, da Vinci, in the late ninetieth century a man of the name of Thomas Edison, also excelled greatly as an inventor. Both of these two men have created hundreds of inventions and were great contributors to our society. Thomas Edison was unlike Leonardo in that he was an inventor without being a big artist. Connections The Cassegrain telescope was made by a man named Sieur Guillaume Cassegrain in 1672. It has two lenses that send the light back and forth to see. There are 3 types of telescopes that were invented then.
