How does steam power work?

    There are a few variations on the design of a steam engine, but they involve heating water in a chamber to its boiling point, which produces steam.  The pressure of the steam pushes it through a pipe to gain momentum, then it passes through a turbine, causing the turbine to spin, like air blown at a pinwheel.  The rotational energy from the turbine can be converted to electricity or other usable energy through a generator.  After passing through the turbine, the steam is condensed back into liquid, to flow back into the heating chamber.
