A proposal for the machine was written in late 1942 and submitted to the Army for calculating Artillery Firing Tables. ENIAC was built between 1943 and 1945. Its first real program, simulation of Edward Teller's Classical Super fusion bomb, was run in December 1945 and January 1946, used a million punched cards. The simulation showed this fusion bomb design to be not workable. ENIAC was publicly announced and demonstrated in February 1946 (prior to this it was a Top Secret project).

No. ENIAC was invented long before Microsoft was founded.

The ENIAC computer was invented in 1959

Here is a really interesting site that is all about ENIAC >

The ENIAC computer was named so because of the operations the computer were capable of. ENIAC stands for "Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer".

invented in 1942project begun to build it in 1943completed in 1945

Well the ENIAC was built in 1949.

nobody. it was invented then built, not discovered.

Unknown. It was developed in the ENIAC project in WW2 but nobody recorded who first came up with it. ENIAC did not use it.

The first electronic computer was invented in 1946 at the University of Pennsylvania. It is called ENIAC.

ENIAC. No it was not the ENIAC. The first fully functional, fully programmable computer was the Z3. It was invented by a German Konrad Zuse before the ENIAC existed. Americans did not invent the computer.

none. Colossus and ENIAC were invented earlier. Discussions on later computers did not begin until 1946.

Z3, an electromechanical programmable computer was invented in Berlin. ENIAC, the first general-purpose electronic computer was invented at the University of Pennsylvania.

ENIAC Or John Mauchly and J. Presper Eckert Jr.

ENIAC was built in the Moore School of Electrical Engineering of the University of Penn. Designed and built under the supervision of John Mauchly and J. Presper Eckert

Work on building ENIAC began in 1943, if that is what you mean.ENIAC was invented in late 1942 by Presper Eckert & John Mauchly, but many of the principles they used were derived without credit from prior work of John Vincent Atanasoff prior to the war.

ENIAC which stands for Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer was invented in the year 1943. It was made using 18000 vacuum tubes and covered a space of 1500 meter square.

Eniac was finished in 1946 and invented by John Mauchly and J. Presper Eckert.

The project began in 1943, was finished in 1945, was demonstrated in 1946, was significantly upgraded in 1948.

The ENIAC was built by the U.S. Army.

no, ENIAC was fully electronic.

ENIAC- Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer) was the first electronic general-purpose computer.

The inventers were:John Mauchley - idea man but no electronic engineering abilityPresper Eckert - electronics engineer

the first computer named the eniac it was developed to help the united states during world war 2.
