What did they use before electricity?
fires burn wood for fuel friction stuff like that XD

Thanks for the feedback!
They'd usually hang them over a fireplace or just air dry their clothes. Even in the wettest climates, the standard way to dry clothes is on a clothesline, strung either outdo…ors or indoors.
lit candles on the tree on little holders, yes very very dangerous
Before the electric drill , it was done by hand. There's a hand-cranked drill, probably still used by the Amish. My father owned one.
Electricity changed a lot of ways things were done. Almost anything done with electricity had an earlier counterpart. Lights were kerosene or candles. Cooling was with ice. Th…ere was air conditioning in the 1800's using gas, no electricity. People wrote letters and they were carried by the post office, on horse, train and ship. Clothes were washed by hand and dried on a line outside. There were a lot of new inventions because of electricity, but all the basic needs of living were taken care of some how with manual labor or some mechanical means. Steam engines came along before electrical one did. Water wheel were used to power many things.
they burned wood for fuel
It must be burnt and then compressed to get all of the useful energy out. Then the energy let out is measured in joules and used for electricity.
You should make sure that the main plug is in fully and is secure in the socket, and you should also make sure that the wire inside the rubber isn't exposed other wise you wil…l get electrocuted!
People got light before electricity by burning things especially wood, oil, and wax. They would use candles, gas lamps, and torches to name a few.
People burned fuel, such as wood, coal, and vegetable oil, to stay warm.
they stopped using candles, kerosene, oil lamps and fire torches in the late 19th century
Animals -like horses,oxen, men, women,and mules to do the work required. Or windmills and waterfall wheels to turn machines. There were candles and oil lamps for lighting. P…ower was manually generated by men and women; they also made use of animal power of horses, camels, donkeys and elephants. Wood and coal were also used to generate power. Machines were operated by the power provided by windmills, waterfall machines, and even by crude production of solar energy.
There were many ways of communication. Smoke signals, fire signals, courier pigeons, flag signals, and foot traversed letters. It was more complicated back then, but it was do…ne that way for much longer than the ways we communicate now.
the sun Not only were greenhouse heated from the engery produced by the sun but also by heat from paraffin heaters and heated water pipes heated by coal or wood fires.
meat was salted to keep it fresher (salt is a preservative) or it was eaten fresh. if you needed milk you went and milked your cow. if you needed lamb for dinner you went out …and killed a lamb.
for an electric supply to become useful; the voltage level (amplitude ) and the frequency (time base) needs to be of the correct level, rating and stable and reliable.
