First china war was b/w Britain and china in 18 march-29 august 1842 in china. British got victory in this war.

Territorial changes- Hong Kong island coded to the united kingdom.

Amandeep Kaur said: (Nov 3, 2012)  
In 1842, the Treaty of Nanking-the first of what the Chinese later called the unequal treaties-granted an indemnity to Britain, the opening of five treaty ports, and the cession of Hong Kong Island, thereby ending the trade monopoly of the Canton System. The failure of the treaty to satisfy British goals of improved trade and diplomatic relations led to the Second Opium War (1856-60). The war is now considered in China as the beginning of modern Chinese history.

In 1842, the Treaty of Nanking-the first of what the Chinese later called the unequal treaties-granted opium trade.

This opium was sold to Chinese farmers which made them inefficient at work and addicted to opium.

So the angry Chinese king cancelled the treaty and threw all the opium in the sea this agitated english men who followed all rubbish rules of Chinese king n raged the war on 18 march 1942.

The British used to sell the opium from Afghanistan which was a part of the earlier India. Chinese people began to exchange silver for opium which caused a stream of silver export to England. To curb this, the Chinese government declared war against British known as Opium war.
