Gunpowder was used in the 11th century Song Dynasty by, Wujing Zongyao. This was a discovery led to the invention of fire work’s. Gunpowder consists of potassium nitrate, some common charcoal, and sulfur. The potassium nitrate became from a decaying animal manure, and later it becomes from mines in china.
There were several important inventions during medieval chinese times but , there were three key inventions that advanced chinese culture.Did you know that china was one of the first cultures to use gunpowder so they can put it inside of guns ,fireworks and other stuff.China was an advanced culture because china recorded their historians on codices.
Furthermore, while Landes bestows Europe with the accountability of “invention of invention,” many of the ground-breaking inventions that the world saw in the 15th century were generated in non-European societies. In 895 A.D., China saw the invention of gunpowder. While initially used for flame throwing, it was soon used in bombs, grenades and rockets by 1231 A.D. This opposes the theory that Europe took initiative to employ gunpowder in warfare while China merely used it for leisurely purposes, including flame throwing. Printing and paper-making were also invented in China, and ultimately led to the widespread use of paper currency and the printing of literature. China also saw the innovation of printing by paving the way towards other inventions such as wallpaper, tissue paper, toilet paper and certain articles of clothing. Many of these
The discovery of gunpowder changed war from being fought with medieval weaponry and battle tactics to more modern day weapons and tactics because the gunpowder powered weapons are more deadly. Weapons that use gunpowder to launch projectiles have a greater range than melee weapons and are more powerful than bow and arrows. Also, cannons are more powerful and have a greater range and accuracy than catapults and they also can be reloaded faster than catapults. Gunpowder weapons changed war because they are stronger, more accurate, have a greater range and are able to be reloaded faster than medieval weaponry.
The rise of the west was a time in which European nations became more advanced and had an increase of power and dominance. Europe became a dominant nation in the 16th Century while two large Gunpowder empires began to decline. These European nations dominated because they had technological advancements. Some of which were gunpowder, cannons, and much more. Both the Ottoman and the Ming Empires rose to the top and then declined after the European nations began to advance. The European Miracle was when the European nations began to advance in technology, they expanded, and dominated the world.
Gunpowder was invented by the Chinese people around 700 A.D. Its invention would start a revolutionary change for military weapons around the world and would become the starting point for today’s weapons. The Chinese did not know it at the time, but they had just made a big step forward for the world in military technology. They first used gunpowder for fireworks rather than using it to become a powerful military force. If the Chinese had used gunpowder for making weapons instead of fireworks upon first discovering it in 700 A.D., they would have had a great advantage over most other civilizations and could easily have become a military superpower.
Many new technology started to arise. The weapons are the ones in which developed even more. Such as the machine guns, the guns were the most destructive weapon. The most popular one was the Gatling gun. What made the gun convenient was that they had the ability to carry it around and if was an effective addition to their weapons. The poison gas was another new technology which made war even more miserable. Both sides thought that the use of poison gas would allow them to break
Gunpowder was invented in Tang China in 850. It was made during experiments that sought to make elixirs that prolong life . It composed of saltpeter, or potassium nitrate, sulfur, and charcoal and explodes when a spark from a percussive impact ignites it . The Chinese during the Song dynasty saw gunpowder’s potential. They utilized it in propelling rockets and making explosive projectiles. The Chinese Bureau of Munitions, by the thirteenth century, had seven factories that produced 7,000 rockets and 21,000 bombs per day . In 1232, they used thunder-crash bombs, which are early hand grenades, against the Mongols, who attacked Kaifeng, a city in northern China . Mongols, however, learned the recipe to gunpowder and began using gunpowder-based
Inventions and innovations in weaponry and warfare helped both the Christians and the Muslims. In the end, both sides learned from their experiences in war, thus many new inventions emerged, including the lance, the longbow, the crossbow, the flail, full-body armor, and chainmail. There were many other inventions changed the way that battles were fought, and continue to be used in the modern world of war today. Gunpowder, for example, is an obvious discovery that contributed to the later invention of cannons, which changed the way battles were fought both on the land and at sea. Siege weapons were also invented and improved upon following the Crusades. The blueprints for these incredibly powerful weapons were brought back to Europe and modified in order to meet the challenges faced throughout the Crusades.
Imperialism is like a kingpin putting his hardest working, most experienced partners in a territory that they have sole control over, with the main job of making the money to bring back to the kingpin, getting their “cut” thereafter. It was the same for the British. Imperialism was vastly growing in the new British Empire. New Imperialism gave rise in East Asia and Africa with the new trade networks and new products and goods that were made to be profitable. According to Abina and the Important Men, palm oil became a new “golden” standard for the British. It was a necessity to how machines in factories worked post-Industrialization era. As for East Asia, opium became extremely profitable, although it put many of the population(s) at extreme
Another artifact shows how the invention of gunpowder increased Chinese trade and caused the rise and fall of empires and governments. And that a small invention, with seemingly no use at all, contributed to the creation of even greater technology like ammunition and first generation
The 19th century had sparked a time period of bloody revolution, social and political reform, and both economic and financial problems for China. Though the cause of many of these problems could be rooted to internal conflict, foreign influence on Chinese ways proved to be disastrous. During the early 19th century the population was growing, the economy seemed stable and generally people seemed content with China’s economic progress. However these feelings of success would soon end as overpopulation would cause widespread poverty and famine. At that point in time China’s rulers had been Manchu; the Qing dynasty had been in rule but even its
