The steam engine changed society by the ingenious application of its power to kinds of work that formerly taxed the physical energies of the human race.

    Nope.

    Please go back and read what I posted before about how the steam engine changed society.

  • Socials-Ms. Sue -

    The steam engine changed society by disrupting family living, causing too much pollution, and also tarnishing children's lives because they were employed in factories as well, for long hours.

    Not only the children, but also the parents worked in factories. Before most people worked at home, making textiles and clothing. They could watch the children and be with their families. With the introduction of the steam engine, though, people worked in factories, sometimes leaving children unattended at home.

    thank you for the information Ms. Sue, I really appreciate it.
    Would these changes be restricted to the area of transportation alone?

  • Socials-Ms. Sue -

    No. Steam engines were used to power machines in factories.
