Watt's Improvements

In 1763, James Watt repaired a steam pump made by Thomas Newcomen. Watt noticed that Newcomen's pump was not size proportional. He then fixed this issue and created a more efficient, and faster engine. Powered by coal, the engine burns the coal sending steam through a cylinder causing a piston to move back and forth. The burning of the coal does give off a gas that will pollute the Earth.

The Steam Engine Background

The original steam pump was invented in 1698 by Thomas Savery. A iron monger named Thomas Newcomen made Savery's pump into a inefficient source of motive power.
