However, mechanical efficiency may have added coloring to personal efficiency; the machine does, but does not feel. The concept of mechanical efficiency developed out of the application of the laws of thermodynamics to the technology of the steam engine in the last quarter of the nineteenth century, and soon it became a central concept of engineering. The machine whose efficiency the engineer calculated, however, was often owned by a business enterprise interested in profit.
