It was used in textile industry, in steam boats and in steam trains
In a chamber outside the engine called the boiler, fossil fuels were burned to boil water,
resulting in the production of steam.
THE PRESSURE COULD BE USED TO:
move a piston
transform heat energy into mechanical energy
Steam turbines transform pressurized steam, turning its blades in a rotation movement
This rotation movement is generally used to generate electricity.
INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES
Fossil fuel combustion is produced inside the engine and the
explosion achieved are used to move a piston with a lineal motion.
up and down
back and forward
internal combustion engines in which the combustion generates directly a rotary movement. It is not necessary
the use of pistons. The crankshaft remained stationary and the entire cylinder block rotated
