Dallas has bet on high-profile wideout talent like Roy Williams and Terrell Owens before, with mixed results. But the Jones family is clearly convinced they can turn around the career of Cooper, who was chosen fourth overall by Oakland in
In James Watt, a Scottish instrument maker and inventor, modified a Newcomen engine by adding a separate condenser to make it unnecessary to heat and cool the cylinder with each stroke.
A delicate child, Watt was taught for a time at home by his mother; later, in grammar schoolhe learned LatinGreekand mathematics. He met many scientists and became a friend of British chemist and physicist Joseph Blackwho developed the concept of latent heat.
In he married his cousin Margaret Miller, who, before she died nine years later, bore him six children. The Watt engine While repairing a model Newcomen steam engine inWatt was impressed by its waste of steam.
In Mayafter wrestling with the problem of improving it, he suddenly came upon a solution—the separate condenserhis first and greatest invention. Watt had realized that the loss of latent heat the heat involved in changing the state of a substance—e.
Shortly afterward he met British physician, chemist, and inventor John Roebuckthe founder of the Carron Works, who urged him to make an engine. He entered into partnership with him inafter having made a small test engine with the help of loans from Joseph Black.
Bored with surveying and with Scotland, Watt immigrated to Birmingham in An medal celebrating the partnership of Matthew Boulton and James Watt. In two engines were installed—one for pumping water in a Staffordshire colliery, the other for blowing air into the furnaces of British industrialist John Wilkinsonthe famous ironmaster.
That year Watt married again; his second wife, Ann MacGregor, bore him two more children. During the next five years, untilWatt spent long periods in Cornwall, where he installed and supervised numerous pumping engines for the copper and tin mines, the managers of which wanted to reduce fuel costs.
Watt, who was no businessman, was obliged to endure keen bargaining in order to obtain adequate royalties on the new engines. By he was doing well financially, though Boulton still had problems raising capital. In the following year Boulton, foreseeing a new market in the corn, malt, and cotton mills, urged Watt to invent a rotary motion for the steam engine, to replace the reciprocating action of the original.
He did that in with his so-called sun-and-planet gearby means of which a shaft produced two revolutions for each cycle of the engine. Inat the height of his inventive powers, he patented the double-acting engine, in which the piston pushed as well as pulled.
The engine required a new method of rigidly connecting the piston to the beam. British Crown copyright, Science Museum, London Later years Demands for his engine came quickly from paper mills, flour mills, cotton mills, iron mills, distilleries, canals, and waterworks.
The steam engine did not absorb all his attention, however. He was a member of the Lunar Society in Birmingham, a group of writers and scientists who wished to advance the sciences and the arts. Watt experimented on the strength of materialsand he was often involved in legal proceedings to protect his patents.
In he and Boulton were elected fellows of the Royal Society of London. Watt then began to take holidays, bought an estate at Doldowlod, Radnorshire, and from onward gradually withdrew from business. Nevertheless, he traveled with his wife to Scotland and to France and Germany when the Peace of Amiens was signed in and continued to work in the garret of his house, which he had equipped as a workshop.
There he invented a sculpturing machine with which he reproduced original busts and figures for his friends. He also acted as consultant to the Glasgow Water Company.
His achievements were amply recognized in his lifetime: Kingsford Legacy The Watt engine was a defining development of the Industrial Revolution because of its rapid incorporation into many industries.Write Around the Toon added 4 new photos.
