Explain how science and technology might have worked together to lead to the invention of the refrigerator


Science provided the theoretical principles, while technology provided the means to build a working system based on those principles.

  • Q: What scientific principles are involved in refrigeration technology? A: Refrigeration technology operates on the principle of thermodynamics, which involves the transfer of heat from one object to another.
  • Q: How did technology contribute to the invention of the refrigerator? A: Technology enabled the construction of a mechanical system that could manipulate the thermodynamic principles to reliably create an environment that would cool and preserve food.
