Improvements and Effects
James Watts improved the Newcomens engine by separating the condenser from the main body allowing the steam to be condensed without cooling the body. Another improvement was the ability to cause rotary motion. The new engine allows mills to move away from rivers and streams which means mills are less expensive to build. Transportation is also improved because ships no longer rely on winds to move and use the steam pressure to move.
