    Invention Of Steam Power Engines

    1781 words, 8 pages

    A steam engine is defined as an engine that uses the expansion or rapid condensation of steam to generate power. For modern purposes, an advantage is the engines ability to convert raw heat into mechanical work. They are able to burn fuel efficiently and cleanly with basically no pollution. This is because the oxygen for combustion is unmetered. Steam engines were the foundation of the industrial revolution because they were able to power all early locomotives.
