  • For a couple of seconds as long as you don't break the filament inside. Without the gas the glass holds in, it won't work long.
  • An incandescent bulb uses heat caused by an electrical current. When electrical current passes through a wire, it causes the wire to heat. The wire, or filament, gets so hot that it glows and gives off light. Everyday incandescent light bulbs have a filament made of tungsten. Since the hot tungsten would quickly burn away if it were exposed to oxygen, it must be placed in a sealed glass bulb which is either evacuated or filled with a gas that won’t let it burn.
  • Yeah~for a nano second and then it burns out like in a flash Light us alone
