I'd like to dwell on electronics as not a day passes without the apearnce of a new eletronic device. The first great progress in electronics came with the invention of the vacuum tube or valve in 1904.it made broad casting possible.the development of electronics during World War II gave us radars and electronic computers. The first general purpose computer for scientific use was invented in 1949.Today computers have become common they can do fantastic things. Computer can condukt experiments in places which are too dangerous for people. Some computers are used in carves and mines to replace workers. Besides thay can be designed for special purposes. Thay can solve mathematical problems,make bank aubuts,play chess.New supercomputers solve problems in many branches of industry,science and culture.They are videly used in submarine navigation and in modern hospital.Now much is being done to create artificial intellect. Science has brought in to being a new atomic technologies.Elektric
