Today in the class of Social Science some students have arrived later because they have had a physical and chemistry exam. I'm one of the students that have arrived later today and the exam has been a disaster.
Then the teacher has explained us the second industrial revolution and it's consequences:
- Chronology: 2nd half of the 19th century.
- New sources of energy and many inventions principally electricity and oil. For example, the telephone, the telegraph, radio... Also the invention of differents types of engines: Diesel and explosion engine.
- Industries that developed most:
Metalworking industry: stainless steel and aluminum.
Chemical industry: concrete, pesticides, chemical products..
Consumer society developed.
Massive exploitation of resources and pollution increased.
Cyclical crises appeared.
Then the teacher for homework has sended the summary of this point to study for the exam. Also we have copied some words in the part of glossary of our notebook. This has been the class of today.
