Name Tutor Date Class Effects of technological advancement on cotton gin on society The modern cotton grin and improved machinery constitute a major technological advancement in the textile industry. Cotton grin based on the machine invented by Eli Whitney which used sieves of wires in holding the seeds and the ginning process was carried out as an independent process (Hergeth 79). Cotton gin has since gradually technologically advanced for examples the Rotary Knife Grin Stand introduced in 1960 used a larger diameter roller plus a stationary knife in exerting pulling action of the fibers ("Development of Cotton Gin PM2.5 Emission Factors for EPA’s AP-42" 27). Ten years later McCarthy Gin utilized smaller diameter flighted roller in providing the required pushing action at the ginning point. In the modern ginning process the technology has advanced so as not to focus on the traditional ginning mechanism but also combining gin with Works Cited Amutha K.

Paper One Examine any existing and well developed technology. Define the effects of that technology on society. There is a date boundary for this paper 1800 to present day. As an example you could examine what effect the telegraph had on society. The paper must also examine what existing technology was displaced by the “new” technology. Areas to examine include impact on jobs, economic changes, and displaced manufacturers. The minimum number of pages will be 5 (double- spaced, 12pt font) in the main body of the paper with the maximum number of pages not to exceed 8 in the main body of the paper. Large images and supporting data may be added in the appendices no page limit on Appendices. No papers are to be written about the Internet, computer or cell phone technologies!
