INTRODUCTION

Imagine you have to take a flight and you are already late because of some reason. On the top of that, weather is not favoring you, it is too foggy and frigid, so it becomes difficult to reach airport on time. Fast driving is such a challenging task in this weather. So thanks to Margaret Wilcox who invented the car heater which acted as “two shots in an arrow”! It made driving easy by keeping windows mist free and also maintained car interior at chosen temperature according to our need.

History:

  Margaret A. Wilcox: Major inventions have not been made just by men but by women as well.  In 1893, the first car heater was invented by a female mechanical engineer named Margaret Wilcox. She was born in 1838 in US, Chicago. Heater was the most notorious experimental invention that is considered still to be most valuable. She was patented for car heater on Nov 28, 1893. She also invented a combined clothes and dishwasher machine. Let’s have a look on the count of development.

  • Car heater:

A car heater is a radiator -like device used in heating the cabin of a vehicle. Hot coolant from the vehicle’s engine is passed through a winding tube of the core and exchange heat between coolant and cabin air. The temperature to which the air is warmed is controlled by either a water valve or air blending system.

In a water-valve heating system, the heater casing contains a matrix – a small radiator that takes hot water from the engine. Incoming air goes through the water-heated matrix and is warmed. The air-blending system has a matrix that is heated constantly. The temperature control opens and closes flaps that blend heated air with cold air from outside.

One of the example where car heater is used as an application:

VIEWS:

A car without a heater can be thought as winter without sweater. Car heater allows riders to travel in comfort. This invention was long lasting. Today, heater has got its own importance and become an important feature of any car model. Wilcox has set a great and inspiring example of women power.

FORECAST:

     The information given above clearly depicts that women have power to achieve anything. The new era will be marked as a revolutionary change by women empowering the deed to bring a depth change in the world.

CONCLUSION:

     Technology and development are waiting for the new and fresh ideas. So, all the ladies out there don’t let them wait, just brighten the world with your knowledge and potency. We keep the power to change the era. Be confident, touch the sky and set your own example as an inspiration to others.
