WARE Steam Culture Cannon Louisville KY Rental BoilerToday on Steam Culture, Brent discusses the power of steam as a projectile launcher.

Archimedes was a Greek inventor, mathematician, philosopher and engineer way back in 200 B.C. He invented, among other things, a cannon that harnessed the power of steam to launch a steel ball.

The first device included a large metal tube placed inside a furnace. Once heated to a certain temperature, a small amount of water would be injected into the tube behind the projectile. When the water changed into steam, the pressure of the steam's energy would rise and force the projectile out of the tube. If you want to know more about steam's energy, check out last week's episode.

Watch the video to see how it all works.
