1.1.1 It was used in textile industry, in steam boats and in steam trains
1.2 In a chamber outside the engine called the boiler, fossil fuels were burned to boil water,
resulting in the production of steam.
1.2.1 THE PRESSURE COULD BE USED TO:
22.214.171.124 move a piston
126.96.36.199 transform heat energy into mechanical energy
1.3 Steam turbines transform pressurized steam, turning its blades in a rotation movement
1.3.1 This rotation movement is generally used to generate electricity.
2 INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES
2.1 PISTON ENGINES
2.1.1 Fossil fuel combustion is produced inside the engine and the
explosion achieved are used to move a piston with a lineal motion.
188.8.131.52 up and down
184.108.40.206 back and forward
2.1.2 Spark-ignition engines.
2.1.3 Compression-ignition engines.
2.2 ROTARY ENGINES
2.2.1 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
