Tractor
A TRACTOR is an engineering vehicle specifically designed to deliver a high tractive effort (or torque ) at slow speeds, for the purposes of hauling a trailer or machinery used in agriculture or construction . Most commonly, the term is used to describe a farm vehicle that provides the power and traction to mechanize agricultural tasks, especially (and originally) tillage , but nowadays a great variety of tasks. Agricultural implements may be towed behind or mounted on the tractor, and the tractor may also provide a source of power if the implement is mechanised. The word tractor was taken from Latin , being the agent noun of trahere "to pull". The first recorded use of the word meaning "an engine or vehicle for pulling wagons or ploughs" occurred in 1901, displacing the earlier term "traction engine " (1859)

Agent (grammar)
In linguistics , a GRAMMATICAL AGENT is a thematic relation that refers to the cause or initiator of an event. The agent is a semantic concept distinct from the subject of a sentence. While the subject is determined syntactically, primarily through word order, the agent is determined through its relationship to the action expressed by the verb . The word comes from the present participle agens, agentis ("the one doing") of the Latin verb agere, to "do" or "make". CONTENTS * 1 Theory * 2 See also * 3 References * 4 External links THEORYTypically, the situation is denoted by a sentence , the action by a verb in the sentence, and the agent by a noun phrase . For example, in the sentence "Jack kicked the ball", Jack is the agent and "the ball" is the patient . In certain languages, the agent is declined or otherwise marked to indicate its grammatical role

Flywheel
A FLYWHEEL is a mechanical device specifically designed to efficiently store rotational energy . Flywheels resist changes in rotational speed by their moment of inertia . The amount of energy stored in a flywheel is proportional to the square of its rotational speed . The way to change a flywheel's stored energy is by increasing or decreasing its rotational speed applying a torque aligned with its axis of symmetry, Common uses of a flywheel include: * Smoothing the power output of an energy source

Stationary Steam Engine
STATIONARY STEAM ENGINES are fixed steam engines used for pumping or driving mills and factories, and for power generation. They are distinct from locomotive engines used on railways , traction engines for heavy steam haulage on roads, steam cars (and other motor vehicles), agricultural engines used for ploughing or threshing, marine engines , and the steam turbines used as the mechanism of power generation for most nuclear power plants . They were introduced during the 18th century and widely made for the whole of the 19th century and most of the first half of the 20th century, only declining as electricity supply and the internal combustion engine became more widespread.
