Revolution Questions and Answers (Q&A)

There was strong hate for Catholicism in the leaders of the Revolution because the Catholic Church represented what they hated. At that time, the leaders of Revolution were against the leadership and monarchy at the time. The aristocracy, the rich and the powerful had long been Catholics.

They were from the first two estate of the French society (clergy and nobility), they were exempted from tax and the third estate had to pay a direct tax called “taille”, they had to render free services to lords. The clergy and nobility did nothing and got everything from the commoners.

The commoners also paid another tax known as “tithe” to the clergy. The clergy enjoyed monopoly on religion which they abused. It was only natural for the leaders of the revolution to hate the Catholic Church that had great power in France.

Reform and revolution are known to be two different terms. When you say reform this means that you are going to make some changes to what is already set. Revolution means that the current laws will completely be removed and will be replaced with something new. With reform, the changes that are happening are going to be gradual. A revolution means that the change is going to be fast.

This can make a lot of people become frustrated. It is possible that a backlash is going to happen after some time. Take note that reform can be changed back to how it used to be while revolution cannot be changed back anymore.

One consequence of the British and American victory in the French and Indian War was that a new spirit of independence arose, as the French threat disappeared. The American didn't adopt several French customs.

At the end of the war, the British took over Canada from France and Florida from Spain. France kept its West Indian sugar islands and the British gave Louisiana to Spain. The war provided Great Britain enormous territorial gains in North America.

The treaty strengthened the American colonies significantly. The American colonies grew closer to Britain Americans but didn't fear the Spanish.

Thomas Paine is famous for writing Common Sense. This is a pamphlet written in 1775-76 advocating that the 13 colonies gain their independence from Great Britain. Paine put forth both moral and political arguments for encouraging common people to fight for the independence he believed in.

One of the arguments he made was that a continent should not be ruled by an island. Common Sense was published anonymously on January 10, 1776 and became an immediate sensation. It wasn’t until later that it was known to be written by Thomas Paine.

RPM is measured by "rotations per minute," while RCF is "relative centrifugal force." RPM signifies the number of revolutions a rotating object completes per minute while the RCF denotes the force applied on an object in a rotating environment.

The RCF is calculated using the RPM and the radius. RPM is an annotation by which a manufacturer of a rotating machine describes it's rotational speed. In linear motion, the velocity of an object is denoted by its RPM. RCF is calculated in terms of gravity multiplied by force. Centrifugal force represents the outcome of inertia, which arises about the rotation.
