how did the industrial revolution contribute to the rise of imperialism
I don't really have an answer but i will give you some ideas. The industrial revolution contributed many new innovations and technologies to the world including many new agricultural advancements as well as ways to make things more efficient. One reason is that it would've made one country superior as it had more resources and better technology due to the innovation provided by the industrial revolution making it relatively easy to exercise imperialism. Basically when one country is stronger and more effective than another it makes it easier for the stronger country to take the lesser weaker country.
