Ch.11 Review Industrial Revolution Industrial Revolution is a series of improvements in industrial technology that transformed the process of maufacturing goods and it started in Europe in the late 1700's and was a cause of population growth between 1750 and 1950. The development of factories was due to the steam engine, patented in 1769 by James Watt. The iron industry was first to increase production through extensive use of Watt's steam engine. Coal was the next product that benefited the iron and steel manufacturing required energy to operate the blast furnaces and steam engines and coal was the answer for this. The new engineering profession made its biggest impact on transportation especially canals and rail ways.
European nation-states had become very powerful because of industrialization and because of the organizational efficiency of the nation-state. European global expansion had actually begun in the fifteenth century, but the process greatly accelerated in the nineteenth century. Slavery took a heavy toll on African development ever since the 16th century. Millions of young people of working age were taken away. Great conflict ensued.

Year 8 change assessment 1. What changed in the iron industry between 1750-1900 In the 1760s Britain had plenty of iron ore and limestone for the industry. Iron was very important because it was used for tools, machinery, ships, railways and trains. Iron was exploited, manufacturing moved from being made in people's homes to being made in purpose built factories. Due to this more factories and industries are made therefore it makes more jobs for the people which benefits them because more money gives a better quality of life.

With doing so, Morgan had created the first billion dollar company in the world, in which the company had held a $1.4 Billion capitalization. The U.S. Steel Company’s main goal was to get greater economies of scale, reduce costs of construction, have greater distribution, and expand its products. The company was also used to compete in a global scale with Germany and England, which would allow for more competition for products and goods. Many critics were stating that U.S. Steel was trying to monopolize the market by trying to take control of everything steel from the railroads to common nails used in construction and also tried to take over the building of ships, bridges, and general construction in the cities. When 1901 came around the business of U.S. Steel had dropped and with this Schwab, who was a
Railroads consumed huge amounts of land and timber for ties and bridges. Throughout the world, railroads opened new land to agriculture, mining, and other human exploitation of natural resources. B. Steamships and Telegraph Cables 1. In the mid-nineteenth century a number of technological developments in shipbuilding made it possible to increase the average size and speed of
By the year 1901, the United States possessed the third-largest navy in the world, a considerable overseas empire, and a burgeoning reputation as a world power. It had acquired this international precedence through its involvement in the fervent imperialism of the era; the rapid expansion, colonization, and competition that was occupying the most influential nations of the world, including Britain, France, Germany, and Japan. America’s new found role as a colonial power was not, however, a sudden development. Whereas the United States expansionism of the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-centuries was a clear continuation of the social and cultural principles that had fueled the nation’s past expansionism, it was to a greater degree a departure from the methods of the past through its pursuit of new economic and political motives. American imperialism of the late 1800s and early 1900s demonstrated the same cultural and social justification of previous expansionism.
