2 BulbsThere are many different types of light bulbs around, and they were all designed with a certain use in mind.
3 Incandescent Bulbs the most familiar and standard bulb produce a steady warm lightused in many household applicationscan last for hoursproduces a yellow light
4 Incandescent Bulbselectricity heats a tungsten filament in the bulb until it glowsfilament is in a vacuum or in a mixture of argon/nitrogen gasenergy consumed by the bulb produces heatlow Lumens per Watt performancesurge of energy causes the filament to break
6 Halogen Bulbs produces a brilliant white light more lumens per watt than incandescentnever touch glasssmall in size and are dimmablemore expensivehigh temperature and possible fire hazard
7 Halogen Bulbs electricity passes through a tungsten filament filament in a glass tube containing halogen gashalogen gas causes a chemical reaction removing the tungsten from the wall of the glass and deposits it back onto the filament
9 Fluorescent Bulbs long bulb life 10,000 to 20,000 hours very efficient produced very little heatcannot be used with dimmersneed components called ballasts to provide the right amount of voltagecasts green light or blue daylight
10 Fluorescent Bulbselectrical current passes through a tube filled with argon gas and mercurythis produces ultraviolet radiation that bombards the phosphorous coating causing it to emit light
