Steam engine is a type of engine which uses steam as its working fluid. It uses the force produced by the steam pressure to push a piston back and forth inside a cylinder. Then, the pushing force is transformed, by a connecting rod and a flywheel, into a rotational force for work. The flywheel is connected with a machine being powered through gears and toothed belts.
The steam engine has many uses. Most commonly it used in factories, mines and trains. Its discovery was a massive boost to transportation and industry throughout the world. It enabled faster transport of resources, products and people as well as mass production of goods.
Steam engine is a blessing from the Saviour. Work has never been easier.
