Transportation What are some of the technology that has helped change transport and what their impacts on the natural world?
History Of Cars The first drivers whore gloves, goggles and caps. In 1769 the first self-propelled car was built. In 1858 First Coal gas engine was built. Wilhelm Maybach built the first four cylinder, four stroke engine. In 1894 Grand Prix racing begins motor racing began as cars were built. Charles Kettering invented the electric ignition and starter motor and now the cars could now start themselves. After the Arab oil Embargo beginning in October 1973, oil prices rocketed causing a world shortage.
History Of Boats Canoes were first built about 40,000 years ago built out of tree trunks hollowed out. 3500BC river boats are invented. The Egyptian seagoing was built in about 2500BC. The sail boat was made around 1300BC and made in Mesopotamia. Underwater boats/submarines date back to the 1500s. About 1,200 years ago the Vikings built long ships that were built out of oak.

How Has Transport Changed The Natural World It has changed the natural world. The natural world would not be the same and everyone will still be using houses. Transport has changed from the transport in BC. The different ways of transport have different changes to the natural world like the steam boat and canoes have changed the natural world different from the first coal powered car.
Technology that changed Transport It has made transportation easier by being faster, safer, more efficient and not as much pollution. The only transport possible without science is walking or running because all the other ways of transportation are a product of science. Most transport is a type of technology one of the common ways of transport has advanced technology (the car). Technology That changed transport
Final Answer There are a lot of simple machines in transportation like wheel and axle, wedge, gears and much more. Some of the technology they use to improve transportation are GPS, motors, radio, brakes and more. As transportation is changing all the time we are always making it bitter and now the aim is for it not to pollute the natural world.
