Which of the following gases is the gas that is filled in the electric bulb?

Options :
  1. Hydrogen
  2. Oxygen
  3. Nitrogen
  4. Carbon dioxide
Answer and Explanation :-

Answer: Option 3

Explanation:

In incandescent electric bulbs the tungsten filament gets white-hot, reaching about 2000 degree centigrade and glows to emit light. Any reactive gas or air filled in the bulb will react with the hot filament and combust it. Hydrogen, Oxygen and Carbon dioxide all are prone to reaction. Hence inert gas like Argon or Nitrogen - which is known as a noble gas - is used to stop the combustion and evaporation of the filament.

It's no good trying to get rid of your own aloneness. You've got to stick to it all your life. Only at times, at times, the gap will be filled in. At times! But you have to wait for the times. Accept your own aloneness and stick to it, all your life. And then accept the times when the gap is filled in, when they come. But they've got to come. You can't force them.
