Can you light a light bulb with static electricity?
Incandescent light bulbs need high current at low voltage.
"Static" electricity is low or zero current at extremely high voltage. So no, you can't use it to light up an incandescent bulb. If you had some way to step the current up and step down the voltage, then maybe you could do it.
However, if you rub a fluorescent tube with newspaper or with cloth, the tube will flash. Fluorescent tubes need high voltage to work. Perform this trick in a darkened room so you don't miss the dim light. (This trick needs a dry environment. So do it in an airconditioned room. During humid weather it may not work!)
Also, you can use "static" or high-voltage electricity to light up a small neon pilot bulb. Some hardware or electronic stores sell these lights. Look for tiny "NE-2" or "NE-83" bulbs. If you hold one wire of the neon bulb, then scuff your shoes on the carpet, then touch the other wire against a large metal object, the bulb will give an orange flash. Instead of creating a spark, you created an orange glow in neon gas.
Static electricity is from charged electrons and electricity from a light bulb is from ionized gas that is sparked causing light.
no not easily
Nope, Carpet will generate Static electricity and a light bulb needs AC or DC current.
If it is just you, the light bulb and the balloon....no. That is just static electricity and is very low voltage and ampheres. If that light bulb is plugged in to a lamp that is plugged into a socket, very possibly yes. That static electricity could be greatly magnified by stray voltage and cause you some serious grief.
Static electricity is a build up of positive and negative electrons that get close enough to interact with each other briefly. This leads to you getting a small shock if you say rub your feet in wool socks against carpet and then touch something metal. However the electrical charge in these reactions is very small, and there is no sustained current. The electricity in a light bulb is a continuously flowing current, so long as… Read More
Yes, you can flash a fluorescent tube with static electricity. Once the static potential difference is equalized the tube will go out. <<>> Static electricity is discharged with a spark in a fraction of a second. Florescent bulbs stay on for long periods of time. Perhaps it could operate a strobe light one time every few minutes. A strobe light does not provide enough light to be useful for anything except photography and dancing at… Read More
electricity because a light bulb needs electricity
Light is not electricity; it is an electromagnetic wave. It is anything but static; the speed of light is 186,000 miles/sec.
It causes friction while rubbing up against the cell membrane, lighting the cell up like a light bulb and static electricity is made causing electricity to be formed
When the flashlight is ON , electrical current is flowing from one terminal of the battery, through the light-bulb filament, to the other terminal of the battery.
how to stop static electricity from a light weight rayon dress
how do you make a homemade waterwheel produce electricity and a light bulb
The incandescent light bulb has a filament of Tungsten inside it. When electricity flows through the bulb, it heats up the filament. This causes the filament to glow and emit light.
Electricity + Glass = Light bulb
He didn't get electricity, he studied it and also found men who helped Thomas Edison get electricity for his light bulb
Input to light bulb is Electricity and output is light.
Two possibilities: the light bulb is broken or there is no electricity getting to the light bulb
Electricity is the source of energy in a light bulb.
Usually, no. If you are thinking of a filament bulb, the filament lights up because electricity passes through it. If the filament fuses (melts) then the pathway is broken.
Electricity is passed through a wire from battery to bulb
How much electricity is consumed depends only on the power Wattage of the light bulb. No matter what types of bulbs they are, a 100 Watt bulb will always consume more electricity than a 60 Watt bulb. The type of bulb makes no difference to how much electricity is consumed but does make a big difference to the amount of light that is produced. In general: * a 100 Watt halogen bulb will produce more… Read More
The light bulb its self is non renewable, it is replaceable. The electricity that powers the light bulb can be renewable.
A typical light bulb wastes 90 percent of electricity. According to the EPD, the typical incandescent light bulb turns only about 10 percent of its electricity into light. A typical light bulb, when on, is hot. That's because 90 percent of the energy is wasted as heat, which means it isn't very energy-efficient. A typical light bulb wastes 90 percent of electricity. According to the EPD, the typical incandescent light bulb turns only about 10… Read More
static electricity is used for powering light bulbs in homes.
The quantity of power consumed by a light bulb is dependant on the wattage of the bulb.
Fluorescent bulbs contain a low pressure mercury vapour. The electricity excites the gas which emits UV light. The inside of the glass is coated with a phosphor. The UV light excites the phosphor which emits visible light. When you rub the bulb with a piece of nylon you are rubbing electrons from one material to the other (i think from nylon to bulb). This results in static electricity which excites the mercury vapour in much… Read More

to convert electricity into light
Light and heat.
The first electric light bulb was made in 1880
Thomas Edison invented the light bulb.
Energy saving light bulbs use less electricity than regular light bulbs. An energy saving light bulb uses between 2 and 17 watts of electricity.
The OFF position on the light switch interrupts the flow of electricity to the light bulb. If the switch is ON, there is always electricity at the light socket, even when the light bulb is removed. if the lamp is still pluged in electricity is still flowing through the lamp even if it is off or on
Electricity and a glass bulb
A light bulb turns electricity into visible illumination, usually by heating a filament or gas within the bulb.
You don't. The design of an ordinary light bulb is to operate with a voltage supply.
A bulb eats a light so the answer is bulb light and wire
A light bulb is not a source of electricity. It is a device used to harness electricity to provide light.
The electricity passing through the wire filament in the bulb causes it to heat up so much that it glows brightly.
Althought electricity was already discovered, the light bulb influenced greater technoglical improvement in electricity production and distribution. The advent of the light bulb also led to the development of just about every industry where light / illumination was required.
Yes. Have you ever touch a light switch after walking over a carpet? Did you get a little shock? That's static electricity being discharged.
light and sound is produce.
it is solar powered
It seems if simple static electricity experiments can sufficiently harness 'static electricity' to reveal visible effects, i.e. a charged comb makes hair stand up, then the same effect should be applicable on a much larger scale. Why? Because the hair is attracted to the 'charged comb,'it indicates a 'magnetic effect.' Once the 'magnetic effect' is applied to a visible result, i.e. hair standing up, it means static electricity has been converted to magnetic power. It… Read More
current electricity is electricity used in a currents to power devices. static electricity is when friction is made between to objects causing neutrons to jump from one object to another at the speed of light
No power is used. The lamp in the light fixture is the load of the circuit. The load resistance is what makes the current flow. When the current flows through the filament's resistance, heat and light are generated. With no lamp in the fixture, the circuit's voltage potential is still at the socket contact points and if touched could cause you a shock. This is a good reason to shut the fixture off at the… Read More
Eletricity,when there is electricity electron move through the wires an connect with the bulb tothe filament of the bulb to produce light.
Because to much electricity is getting through to the light bulb.
When a light bulb burns out it no longer makes light. This is because there is no way to connect the flow of electricity.
