Eventually someone tried to push

connected to a crankshaft to turn

piston reached the top, the
pressure prevented it from coming
back down.

with custom motion paths (line type) to

The top circle also spins in step with the
moving rod. The rod is the trickiest because
it moves and rotates at the same time.
A solution was to add another
chamber. With a valve the
steam can be released into a
cool chamber. @he steam will
condense to liquid water. A
vacuum will be left. A vacuum
cannot pull the piston down,
but outside air pressure can
push it down.

A more efficient design was to
create steam in a separate
chamber and then introduce the
high pressure to the piston
chamber as needed. Like
before, after the piston reaches
the top, the valve to the
condenser is opened (not shown

The gas engine is one of the wonders of the 19th
century. Now, within three years of the 20th
century, it is a novel machine, eagerly sought by
many people. It is thought by persons who have
not studied its principles that it is a steam-engine,
using gas or gasoline as fuel for the purpose of
making steam. This is erroneous. Gas and
gasoline in specific proportion with air are
explosive material.
In the next decade the steam engine will occupy the
same relative position to the gas engine that the flint
and steel now do to the lucifer match.

All told, some 1,800 people perished around Lake Nyos. Later the killer was
found to be carbon dioxide, which is not considered toxic, but its high density
keeps it close to the ground causing asphyxiation. ^ensity also caused it to
flow down the hillsides asphyxiating more people.
ucientists found the carbon dioxide had been building up over time at the
bottom layer of the lake. £agma vents were pumping CO2 into the lake
forming carbonic acid (H2CO3) which essentially is carbonated water. @he
water pressure kept it from decomposing in to CO2 gas which would float and
dissipate. However, a rock slide or small earthquake triggered the carbonic
acid to decompose into CO2 causing the lake to explode.
