Transcript of History and Use of the Automobile

History and use of the automobile An automobile is defined as a Method
Of Transportation that has wheels,
A motor and a frame to carry people.
They usually Run on roads and have an
Internal Combustion Engine. The first combustion engine was
designed and built by henry ford,
which then came into mass production. the The final and fourth stage is the Exhaust stage. The exhaust valve opens and the exhaust is forced out of the cylinder. The normal internal combustion engine you see in your car is a four stroke or has four stages. The first stage is called the intake stroke. this is were the gasoline and oxygen enter the cylinder and drag down it down. The second stage is the compression stage. the piston is forced up which squeezes and compresses the gasses in the cylinder. the Third Stage is called the power stroke. this is were the sparkplug ignites the gasses, forcing them down. If you are wondering how the piston
moves up in the Exhaust and compression
stages, then remember that in the rest of
the engine, there are cylinders that are
on their intake and power stages and
are going in the directions opposite of the
cylinders that are on their compression
and exhaust stages. The combustion engine
was designed and built
because engineers were
searching for an engine
that was more powerful
and reliable than the
steam engine. Many things have changed since the first automobile.
different building materials have been introduced for stronger, lighter constructions. Construction on the vehicles has been emphasized on safety. the internal combustion engine has been modified to be more effecient, more powerful, and easier to produce. Automotive racing has been introduced
and is now a very popular sport. Different types of cars have been
produced for different purposes
and the likes of different people. Luxury cars Sports cars Rally cars commuting cars Our advancements in technologies have also
helped us in the car revolution. things like
direct fuel injection, upgraded ecu's, etc. the biggest advancement would probably
have to be... different power sources! These include; Hybrids, Hydrogen, Ethanol, and even compressed air More gadgets, gizmos and luxuries have
been outfitted to the automobile for
the ease of driver and the passengers.
Things like ABS, Active vehicle stability
control, air conditioning, Stereos have
been outfitted for the comfort and
Safety of both the driver and the
passengers. How have automobiles affected society as a whole? Automobiles have affected us a lot since
the very first ford automobile. They have been there when we've needed them the most. THey have been a source of passion and enjoyment A source of accomplishment. And most of all... An affordable method of easy transportation. Through thick and thin... Cars have always been there to assist us Even in our darkest hours... Cars have always been there to serve
This technology has sadly affected the environment very negatively. And alas, the earth is running into trouble
Deadly greenhouse gasses are pouring out
the tailpipes of every gasoline powered car.
These gasses are slowly choking the earth
and everything living on it. It is also
trapping sunlight under the earth's atmosphere,
causing climate change. ice caps are melting
and water levels are rising. But dont fret! there is still hope! Alternative fuels! By Ali, Jeremy and Martin
