Revolution in great britain

Revolution in Great Britain

  • 1700s = change in technology

  • energy source changed from human & animal power to machinery

Agricultural Factors

  • 1701  Jethro Tull invented seed drill

  • landowners bought up small farms and consolidated them in the enclosure movement


Factors of production land

Factors of Production: Land

  • Great Britain had great natural resources

    • coal for fuel

    • iron for steel & machinery

    • waterways (rivers & canals) to generate power and transport raw materials and goods


Factors of production labor

Factors of Production: Labor

  • Great Britain’s population grew because of greater food supply

  • enclosure movement took land away from small farmers

    • resulted in surplus of available workers


Factors of production capital

Factors of Production: Capital

  • capital is the money or property a business needs to stay in business

  • capital can be money, machines, or people

    • people who specialized in one area had abilities and skills to their advantages


A revolution in textiles

A Revolution in Textiles

  • a cottage industry is an occupation in which you make a craft and it is done in your home

  • making cloth had been a cottage industry

  • cloth was made mostly with wool


A new way of making cloth

A New Way of Making Cloth

  • cloth was now made from wool and cotton

    • more sheep could be raised due to the enclosure movement

    • cotton came to Great Britain from the colonies

  • new inventions helped the process of cloth making


Cotton gin

Cotton Gin

  • invented by Eli Whitney

  • removed seeds from raw cotton


Spinning jenny

Spinning Jenny

  • invented by James Hargreaves

  • spun multiple threads at one time

    • threads were still thick and broke easily


Spinning frame

Spinning Frame

  • invented by Richard Arkwright

  • similar to the spinning jenny

    • spun stronger, thinner threads


Flying shuttle

“Flying Shuttle”

  • invented by John Kay

  • pushed thread back and forth on loom automatically

    • had been done by the weaver pushing the shuttle back and forth

    • allowed for looms to be wider than arm’s width


Power loom

Power Loom

  • invented by Edmund Cartwright in 1785

  • automated the weaving process


Cloth making outside the home

Cloth Making Outside the Home

  • new inventions to speed up the cloth making process were big machines

  • machines needed a special place to house them

  • cloth now made in FACTORIES


Steam powers the revolution

Steam Powers the Revolution

  • steam is created when water is heated to the point of vaporizing

  • water vapors expand when hot

  • steam engines were invented in 1712 by Thomas Newcomen

Development of the steam engine

Development of the Steam Engine

  • James Watt innovated Newcomen’s steam engine to be more efficient

    • Watt’s engine was better suited for factories

  • 1802  Richard Trevithick put a steam engine in first locomotive

  • 1807  Robert Fulton developed the first steamship


Coal for british steam engines

Coal for British Steam Engines

  • coal mining industry in northern and western England grew

  • by 1800, Great Britain produced 80% of Europe’s coal

  • mining was dangerous

    • explosions

    • coal dust

    • collapsing shafts

    • hard labor


Exit ticket

Exit Ticket

  • What are the three factors of production that we discussed?

  • What is an example of each of these factors that Great Britain had?

  • How did the early inventions help the textile industry change from a cottage industry to an industry performed in factories?
