How a light bulb works
« on: 12/03/2016 07:17:31 »
                       HOW A LIGHT BULB WORKS

This is great invention indeed, which changed functioning of mankind on this earth.  Thomas alva edison first developed an incandescent bulb using the filament, oxygen free glass bulb.  In 1990, William Coolidge invented the tungsten filament which has a
very high melting point and thus an even longer life than the carbon filament.  Here when electricity is sent through filament, it gets heated and converts electrical energy into light energy.

Here how the electrical energy is converted into light energy is not known.  It is simply an assumption that if the filament gets heated it converts electrical energy into light energy. 
BASIC FEATURES:
01 Thomas alva Edison, removed oxygen from the glass bulb since it aids burning of things.
02 He used high resistant filament for strong concentration of energy.
03 Since there is no oxygen in the bulb, filament never burns but glows.

Working of light bulb:
Here we have to remember one important point that if any thing burns than light comes out. But here filament is not burning, besides filament is protected from burning by removing
oxygen from the bulb.  Basically there is boost of energy at the filament, but concentration of light is against the light bulb only. if the concentration of light is against the filament than it will go.  Here, We have to remember another important point that we are are using very small amount of electrical energy for getting so much of light energy.  How it is multiplied is not known.

Actually at present we are of the opinion that filament is converting electrical energy into light energy.  But without any burning how it is giving light.  Here we have to remember one important point that light is generated at the light bulb and not at the filament. 

PROCESS OF LIGHT:
01  It is true that energy is of object oriented.
02  As objects are removed from the bulb, concentration/boost of energy inside bulb is not possible.
03  For the energy in the open area, electric bulb is an important object.
04  Even before supply of electricity to the filament, there is heavy concentration of energy against bulb.
05  When electricity is supplied, electrons are sprayed into the bulb. As there are no objects in the bulb, electrons moves freely and touches bulb.
06  Already there is existing energy from the open area against bulb.
07  Electrons coming out from the filament, pushes existing energy against bulb and momentum is gained.
08  Actually light is nothing but group or concentration of electrons at any particular place.
09  Light mainly depends on the velocity with which energy ray, in fact energy exists in the form of rays only, is pushed. suppose if the electrons are released into a wide area, than  velocity is reduced.  But it gives more light within short area.  In case if the electrons are in any one angle than velocity increases and light spreads upto longer distance in any one angle.
 
TO PROVE THIS:
Basic thing is that without the support of outside energy there is no light.
01  In all deep caves where outside energy weakens, light also weakens.
02  In deep water where outside energy is weak, light is also weak. 
03  In a vacuum where there are no objects, electrons moves out freely.  Here as outside energy is weak light is also weak.  In fact in a perfect vacuum there is no scope for any light at all.
04  Let us take our solar system, here there is huge amount of energy spreading throught our solar system.  If we move out from the solar system, it is completely vacuum.  Energy escaping from our solar system, travels with maximum speed and reaches next solar system.  In this gap there is no scope for any outside light.  So we have to create artificially within short area.

Friends, here i am posting my idea, either good or bad give your opinions without hesitation.
It is true that it is very difficult to convince others, but on one day or the other it is going to be proved and accepted.

Yours

psreddy

Hello Pasala, the reason you have probably not had many replies is that your post seem's ''erratic'' and confused and is difficult to understand any ''key'' points you may be trying to make. 

In one sentence what are you trying to say?

Well not really, the discovery of fire changed the functioning of mankind on Earth, it goes a lot further back than a light bulb.

It is simply an assumption that if the filament gets heated it converts electrical energy into light energy. 

You have that incorrect, if electrical energy is added to the element, the element becomes ''charged'  that produces heat and light at the element source to create a ''white'' body, heat and light are distinguishable, heat and photons are then released, photons then travel at c until absorbed again by something else.

May I suggest while you consider your summation of one sentence you read over -

To an extent yes but there is energy potential propagating through space.

02  As objects are removed from the bulb, concentration/boost of energy inside bulb is not possible.

Do you mean remove the bulb glass releasing the ''containment'' and the element will not ''charge''?

If so , you are wrong, what this means is the element is exposed to  oxygen and will ''burn'' up only lasting a short while. The containment is to lengthen the life of the bulb. That is why they use an inert gas that does not burn up but absorbs instead.

03  For the energy in the open area, electric bulb is an important object.

Contradictory to your number 1, ''01  It is true that energy is of object oriented.''


Quote
04  Even before supply of electricity to the filament, there is heavy concentration of energy against bulb.

Do you mean the gases?

Mr thebox,
Thank you for responding.  Here i want to tell the scientists that:
There is huge amount of energy, which i  had already described it as ENERGY BASE on this earth and it is playing key role in
01  Gravity
02  Fire
03  Electricity
04  Explosions
05  and nature existence also.
Since we are not aware of this, we are concentrating on solar energy, which works on the extra energy developed by sun.
Due to this further research is also halted.

If further research is focused on this ENERGY BASE, even a simple invention will go long way. It is true that energy moves from high area to low area and it also travels with maximum speed in vacuum.

Keeping these two points if we start our research, i do not think
it is very difficult or take long time in inventing new methods of
producing electricity. 

Finally, see when we are not able to catch this huge energy, how
can we catch energy coming from a star and when it is not true
means we cannot cross even our solar system.

Once again thank you and awaiting a change.

Yours
psreddy.
