What Is a Steam Engine?

The new invention from James Watt is an engine that is powered off of steam and could be used to spin cotton. This provides an easier, more efficient way to spin cotton, that other machines can't do as well. A possible downfall could be that it is powered off of coal to get the steam and if you don't have coal you can not use the machine.
