James Watt Was Born on This Day in 1736

Permalink Saturday, 19 January 2019

James Watt, Scottish inventor, mechanical engineer and chemist (steam engine), born in Greenock, Scotland. He developed the concept of horsepower, and the SI unit of power, the watt, was named after him.

Watt attempted to commercialise his invention, but experienced great financial difficulties until he entered a partnership with Matthew Boulton in 1775. The new firm of Boulton and Watt was eventually highly successful and Watt became a wealthy man. In his retirement, Watt continued to develop new inventions though none was as significant as his steam engine work. He died in 1819 aged 83.

Since I don’t use social media and blogging platforms, I have to create options I need for my weblog and instead of being tired I couldn’t be more happy about it. People care about what they created the most; true story.

Sometimes everything you need is a music on loop, a dark room, and a full day sleep.
