The introduction of electric lighting meant that predefined areas like small rooms or big factory floors could be enlightened. This meant that people were no longer limited by sunrise and sunset.

Direct Current

The first common way to transmit electricity was direct current or DC, where the electrons flow in only one direction. Batteries produce direct current and it is commonly used in applications requiring low voltages. High voltage direct current is used to transmit power to long distances, especially when using underwater cables and to run trains. Thomas Alva Edison sponsored direct current, but lost the battle of standards to Nikola Tesla and his alternating current.

Alternating Current

In alternating current or AC systems electrons flow in both directions in wave patterns. After a fierce competition with direct current, alternating current got dominance for most domestic and industrial applications. One of the first applications were the electric chairs, which didn't help in convincing that alternating current wasn't more dangerous than direct current.

Polyphase System

The polyphase system is a way to help transmit alternating current efficiently. In it two or more phases travel simultaneously. In industrial applications three waves is the standards, although at first two phases were used. The invention of the polyphase system by Nikola Tesla meant the final loss for Thomas Alva Edison and his direct current.

Stainless Steel

The new metals discovered by using electric furnace included chromium. Chromium mixed in steel forms a protective layer of chromium oxide on the surface of the steel protecting it from corrosion. A lot more scratching was required to enable rusting compared to painted normal steel. Stainless steel was soon used in most tools, pieces of equipment and weaponry.

Rayon

The first of the artificial fibers to be developed in commercial qualities, its production is derived from the liquefaction of wood pulp, which cools to produce a fiber with the tactile feel of silk, and was known as “wood silk” until the name rayon was adopted for the fiber in the 1920s. With disruptions in international trade caused by war between industrial nations, materials such as rayon became important susbititued to maintain production of textiles for military and consumer consumption.
