When was the Union Carbide gas leakage?
The union gas leakage held in 1984
Calcium carbide lamps have been used (historically in mines) to create light by immersing calcium carbide in water to produce acytelene gas, which burns and creates light. Although they work as lamps, the gas produced by them makes them less safe than oil lamps, and as such they were usually only used in industrial lighting rather than in homes. Electrical lighting is usually safer than either oil or carbide lamps because there is less danger…
The English term 'leakage' can have several meanings, including: 1. an unwanted discharge of a fluid or gas from from a container which was designed not to leak; 2. an unwanted leakage of electrical current from something (such as a battery) which should not normally lose any current when it is disconnected from a circuit.
