When was the vacuum cleaner invented?

Daniel Hess invented a machine with a bellows for suction and arotating brush in 1860, but it was largely impractical. Ahand-pumped vacuum cleaner invented by Ives McGaffey appeared andwas patented in 1869. In 1901, Cecil Booth, a British engineer,invented a large contraption built on a wagon that was set upoutside buildings and had hoses running through windows to servicemultiple rooms. Booth had seen a machine originated by an American,and this was a springboard to his device. The Chapman and Skinnermachine from San Francisco (1905) worked, but at nearly 100 pounds,did not sell. James M. Spangler's idea was purchased by WilliamHenry Hoover, who built and marketed a unit with a bag attached toa long handle beginning in 1907. As is so often the case with inventions, a "standard" devicedoesn't appear out of the blue. Rather, a good working design isdeveloped from different ideas that appeared over time before abreakthrough of sorts incorporates those older designs and a bit ofnew thinking.

What year electricity was invented?

From the writings of Thales of Miletus it appears that Westerners knew as long ago as 600 B.C. that amber becomes charged by rubbing. William Gilbert in 1600 described the electrification of many substances and coined the term electricity from the Greek word for amber. As a result, Gilbert is called the father of modern electricity. In 1660 Otto von Guericke invented a crude machine for producing static electricity. It was a ball of sulfur, rotated by a crank with one hand and rubbed with the other. Ben Franklen used a key and a kite in the end he got zapped by the lightning . Sorry, but the answers above are wrong. Electricity is a form of energy, there for it cannot be created or destroyed. So, nobody invented electricity. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I agree with you but the point is who first got the idea that electricity exist and what it is.

How does a vacuum cleaner work?

Bagless When you turn on the vacuum cleaner, the suction from the motor (either top or bottom) sucks in dirt and dust, bringing it into the cyclonic dust bin, and preventing it from getting into the motor by using a dust filter. When full, you must dispose of the waste in the cyclonic dust bin, either dumping it into the disposal or using a flip bottom. Bagged When you turn on the vacuum cleaner, the suction from the motor (either pulling it in by a fan driving a belt or a fan behind or below the bag) sucks in dirt and dust, bringing it into the bag (usually filtered). When full, you must dispose of the bag and replace it with an empty one.

What type of Vacuum cleaners were invented in 1868 by Ives McGaffey?

Try the following web sites for your answers McGaffey patents the vacuum cleaner, a "sweeping machine" in 1869. Starts American Carpet Cleaning Co. located in Boston mass Ives W. McGaffey, Chicago, Ill., patent # 91,145 issued June 8, 1869, on a "sweeping machine." The machine contained a hand operated fan. It was manufactured by American Carpet Cleaning Co., Boston, under the trade name Whirlwind. The unit contained all elements of modern electric cleaners except the electric motor. It was the first hand-pumped vacuum cleaner in the United States, a wood and canvas contraption. The "Whirlwind" is a modest success, but McGaffey abandons the idea to work on another invention: an electric-powered milk bucket that can read cows' minds. Many agree that the first true vacuum cleaner was invented in 1868 by Ives McGaffey.The first vacuum by McGaffey sold for $25.00. Pushing the vacuum while manually turning the hand crank made the unit hard to use. Most of the original vacuums sold in Boston and Chicago by the American Carpet Cleaning Company. Unfortunately, only two original examples of the vacuum survive. The Whirlwind was sold in Chicago and Boston, and it is likely that many were lost in the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. Only two are known to have survived, one of which can be found in the Hoover Historical Center. http://listverse.com/history/top-10-everyday-inventions/ actual diagram of the whirlwind http://eltamiz.com/2008/05/06/inventos-ingeniosos-la-aspiradora/

Can you use a steam cleaner as a vacuum cleaner?

Overwhelmingly, no. There are only two steam cleaners available on the market with a built in vacuum. Most people don't buy them to use as a vacuum cleaner though, they are bought because the vacuum gives the steam cleaner the ability to clean carpets on top of their already well known ability to clean hard surfaces. There are some steam cleaners that can be used for carpets and rugs. In fact, they tend to clean the carpet better than most vacuums. They do a much better job at deep cleaning, removing carpet stains, eliminating allergens. Some provide the ability to achieve all of this without harmful chemicals.

Why did they invented the vacuum cleaner?

After the war the US government needed to keep the factories running and the workers still in jobs. They didn't need guns and tanks so much so they quickly got the factories converted to turn out things that the public might buy. Like the vacuum cleaner. In the beginning to recoup development costs and due to monopolies created by patent protections and prices fall as more and more products are sold and more manufacturers come on line). You might guess that the reason vacuums were such a great hit was because they were such a time saver, but this isn't the case. Vacuums and thousands of other new products were rushed to market and cheaply sold right after WWII in order to keep the economy rolling and protect manufacturing jobs. Millions of women had taken factory jobs to support the war, and with no more need for tanks and guns, the factories quickly retooled and turned out things like vacuum cleaners, thereby eliminating wholesale layoffs of the American workforce - which could have sent the US economy into a tailspin. America ran its largest deficit in history to finance the war and needed workers to continue to draw paychecks and pay taxes to pay down the debt. The government did this by selling them products they wanted - and in many cases the products were products they themselves had assembled. It took brooms 30 years to make a comeback, which they accomplished with the invention of the angled brush.

Who invented the electric light and in which year?

The first electric light was the Arc light invented in 1809 by Sir Humphry Davy. The first daily used lamp was the Florescent light developed by Nikola Tesla.

The Incandescent light that Edison is credited for was invented 40 years earlier in 1841 Frederick de Moleyns of England. The patent is on file in England.

Does a vacuum cleaner work in space?

No. First of all it wouldn't stay on the ground. and whywould you need to vacuum? A vacuum cleaner depends on a difference in air pressure tooperate. With no air pressure in space, there could be nodifference in air pressure and thus no operation. Inside a manned spacecraft, which is usually pressurized a vacuumcleaner will obviously work just fine; especially for collectingand disposing of water globules. Also the standard NASA spacetoilet uses a modification of a vacuum cleaner for urinecollection.

Why is a vacuum cleaner called a vacuum cleaner?

The machine gets its name from the fact that the fan in the unitmoves air and creates a low pressure pathway (a vacuum, though apartial one) that is open at the nozzle (or hose, when usingaccessories). Air rushes in at the opening of the pathway, and thatmoving air picks up debris. The air and dirt is then carried to afilter or bag, and the air get out to be returned to the room.Debris is left in the dirt tank or in the bag for disposal.

How is the vacuum created in a vacuum cleaner?

Although it is called a vacuum cleaner, it does not actually create a vacuum. Inside the cleaner there is an electric motor which drives a fan blade. This fan blows air out of the vacuum cleaner and this causes air to be drawn in to the cleaner at the other end. Thus the cleaner works by creating an air flow, not a vacuum.

Do a Vacuum cleaner needs a magnet?

If the vacuum cleaner is powered by electricity this is used to turn the electric motor which is needed to create the suction or vacuum. That motor either has permanent magnets inside it, or the current passes through many "turns" of wire to create magnets when you switch the cleaner on. Early experiment in electricity showed that if a wire is moved in a magnetic field some current is created. Similarly, if a magnet is moved near to a wire the same result occurs. So, yes the cleaner does need a magnet.
