that sped up the weaving process
it progressed to new method of running machines and new ways of processing cotton
enabled spinners to spin cotton into thread very quickly
cleaned cotton 50 times more quickly than a person could
was developed in 1753 by Henry Cort
it used coke to burn away impurities in iron ore
or the exclusive ownership of an invention, for the process from the United States Patent Office
Kelly went bankrupt before collecting any profit
a method that used a special furnace to make many kinds of steel
engine did not rely on water power
allowed factories to be built almost anywhere
this is the manufacture of huge quantities of indentical goods at cheap prices
the use of machine-made parts that are exactly alike
developed by Eli Whitney in the early 1800s the concept made it easier to fit parts together and to fix them when they broke
division of labor
occurs by assingning workers to specialized tasks as a product moves along a conveyor belt from worker to worker
because products are assembled in a moving line, this method is known as the "assembly line"
Henry Ford used assembly lines in the early 1900s to build low-cost automobiles
John Kay began the revolution when he invented a machine called the flying shuttle that sped up the weaving process. It progressed to new methods of running machines and new ways of processing cotton.
He invented the spinning jenny. It enabled spinners to spin cotton into thread very quickly.
He invented the water frame. It used water to power spinning machines.
He invented the steam engine. It replaced water power with steam power, allowing factories to be built anywhere.
He invented power loom. Wove thread into cloth as fast as the new spinning machines produced it.
He invented the cotton gin. It cleaned cotton 50 times more quickly than a person could.
He developed a process called puddling. It used coke to burn away impurities in iron ore.
He worked on ways to turn iron into steel. Working independently, both learned that a blast of air through molten iron acts as its own fuel.
He also worked on ways to turn iron into steel. Working independently, both learned that a blast of air through molten iron acts as its own fuel.
He was an American inventor in 1807. He designed the first practical steamboat, the Clermont. The steamboat ended the need for wind and sails, opening a new era in transportation on rivers and oceans.
In 1830s he used electricity to invent the telegraph. Using an electronic code (dots and dashes), the telegraph carried messages at high speeds over long distances.
Alexander Graham Bell
In 1876 he invented the telephone. Nearly 20 years later the telephone upgraded. This allowed people to communicate faster and easier. They could express there tone and speak aloud have ever they need to. This helped a lot of people out.
He devised the "wireless telegraph", or radio. Inventors found other uses for electricity, too. This helped a lot of people out to. They could listen to music while they were cooking, cleaning, and doing things for the people that live in there house. They could even listen tot he music while they were doing work. This was a big change in environment.
Thomas Edison is a former telegraph operator, invented the electric light bulb. Two years later, Edison set up factories in New York City to make the parts for electric lights. At the same time, he began construction on the first permanent central power station, which opened in 1882.
