The Steam Engine, the Industrial Revolution and Coal

Watt began developing his steam engine in 1773 and in three years had built a working, single-acting steam engine that was ready to be put to work. In 1782, he patented an improved double-acting steam engine. This improved engine was four times more coal-fuel-efficient than the Newcomen engine, which gave it practical use beyond the mining
