The invention that would change the world forever

Henry Ford the inventor

Henry Ford created the automobile for a faster transportation system that could be used for shorter distances. Ford also came up with the assembly line concept that allowed for automobiles to be mass produced and for thousands of people to have new job opportunities.

How a car works:

Firstly, a car needs gas so that it can run, a car needs an engine the chain of reactions which achieve that objective is set in motion by a spark, which ignites a mixture of petrol vapor and compressed air inside a momentarily sealed cylinder and causes it to burn rapidly. That is why the machine is called an internal combustion engine. As the mixture burns it expands, providing power to the car.

How a car works:

The front brakes play a greater part in stopping the car than the rear ones, because breaking throws the car weight forward onto the front wheels. The front wheels must be free to pivot on their steering swivels. The driven wheels, whether front or rear, must also rotate with the drive shafts.


Automobiles allowed for people to travel around faster, and for more jobs to created because of the manufacturing assembly line.
