What were the positive effects of technology during world war 2?
Technology during World War II opened up an entirely new door into what the enemy was doing in areas in which they were once hidden. New pesticides, nuclear technology, and jet engines made the fight faster than it had been in the first World War.

%REPLIES% Answer NONE. If the policy of appeasement had not been followed by Britain and France, WWII might not have happened. If either country had been will…ing to react militarily, then Hitler would have been in trouble. Hitler's generals were looking for any pretext to attempt to remove him. If his gambles in remilitarizing the Rhineland, or the Anschluss with Austria or the Sudetenland crisis or the Czech crisis had been answered like they answered Poland, then Hitler's world would have collapsed. The policy of appeasement led to WWII and all of the death and destruction from this war can be laid at it's doorstep Answer Two unintended positive effects of appeasement were as follows: 1. It provided time for countries like Great Britain to prepare. Despite chamberlains appeasement he also hedged his bets by rearming. Had he confronted Hitler at Munich the only thing he might succeeded in doing is starting a war totally unprepared. Other European countries did nothing. Oddly enough the two traditionally neutral countries, Sweden and Switzerland also prepared. In fact when Hitler invaded Poland Switzerland and Sweden, along with France and Britain mobilized. The rest of Europe naively declared their neutrality. 2. By pursuing appeasement and then having it shoved in their face, eliminated the pacifists as a political force, at least in Britain. After Poland was invaded almost all of Britain knew Hitler had to be confronted. In a democracy a leader cannot underestimate the need to unify the country under a common purpose. This is something President Bush has failed to do in Iraq. Notice the rest of Europe didn’t do much of anything, hoping they would be left out of any fighting. They were not spared.
Hitler conquering Europe is over, no more people dying cause of that war . The positive effect of WW2 would probably be having Hitler dead and also having us out of the Great… depression.
Answer Well World War I was fought in the trenches and some under water. But in World War II we had improved bombs and aircraft the fight w…ith. melissa
world war two had a positive effect on Canada because it boosted our economic system greatly. It also made women more respected. Canada gets more and more immigrants ea…ch year. After world war 2 we had a lot of people from different countries coming and living in Canada. We have gone from mainly farm land to towns and cities.

WW2 introduced a whole range of newer technology. these are some of them Tanks were better armoured, had more powerful weapons and were much faster. The Germans had the advant…age at the start of the war with some spectacular tanks such ans the 'Tiger' tank, while Britain and her allies win through with tanks such as the Sherman, the Patton, and the Churchill. Planes were one of the biggest improvements, and were now not just used for scouting, but for huge bombing raids, attacking ground targets and instalations, and shooting down other aircraft. Infantry weapons became mainly automatic. Radar was developed by the British and proved to be very useful when listening for German bombing raids.
Answer Airborne radar, jet aircraft and rocket aircraft.
it was a tie between America and russia
The new technologies consisted of RADAR, new communications radios, newer tanks and military vehicles, planes with RADAR, Ships with RADAR and much more. There were new surgic…al techniques and treatment techniques in the medical field. The Manhattan Project was the most significant use of technology and science. There were new boats like the PT boat, the Higgins landing boats and tanks that could travel in water to land. They even had a little bit of new night vision technology. It was not very good, but you have to start somewhere! As the war progressed new inventions came along to make improvements for the troops and medical doctors. There were even improved movie and SLR cameras. They had teletype, and even computers that were crude by today's standards.
Radar, Sonar, atomic bombs, more advance airplanes.
it made california awesome
Yes they did but uncertain what your question is for us. The allies had better RADAR and better sonar and betting fighting equipment, planes and the Russian had THE BEST TANK …that the Nazis really feared. The Japanese did not even use RADAR because their equipment was funky. Many of the small arms the Japanese had were from World War 1 and they really believed in hand to hand combat because that is how they were trained from the time they were nine years old.
The US had most of the technology of the era. They had telecommunications, electric technology of any type, aerospace (not in the outer space yet), medical and surgical innova…tions. You name it they had it if it had been invented. They were learning about sonar and RADAR and developing other methods of searching for an enemy. They were developing atomic energy and bombs. Their medical innovations were growing by leaps and bounds as they learned more and more on the war front. Computers were "seeded" during world war two when they made primitive computers to do decoding and other tasks. The jet engine was being developed in England but they had not quite gotten it completed when the war ended. The Germans had the jet and rocket technology and the US nabbed the scientists who created them. Obviously they did not have the computers of today or the internet or satellites in outer space or GPS. The military had tanks, planes of all types, sea vessels of all types, automatic weapons, large artillery and even flame throwers. Every thing we have today in the military got their start in World War 2. We even got the Jeep from that war.

In World War 2
Enormous technological progress was made during the war. The English developed radar which would be the forerunner of television. Progress in electronics and computers, made d…uring the war, provided a foundation for further development which fundamentally transformed the postwar world. The development of the atomic bomb by European and American scientists during the war, not only transformed the nature of potential future wars, it marked the beginning of the nuclear power industry.
There is no real answer because it depends on opinion. This is my oppinion so sorry if it's not what you're looking for. Positive; We developed a lot of new things then Negati…ve; Weapons developed meaning more deaths Positive; Helped balance out populations Negative; They died horribly so I don't exactly agree with it Positive; Gave womankind a chance to prove they weren't useless Negative; At the end of the war the men acted like thy hadn't done anything.
