What is the gas inside a filament lamp?
Some light bulbs are filled with gas. The type of gas can vary depending on the type of light bulb. As the filament burns, tungsten particles separate from the filament, eventually causing the filament to weaken and break. The presence of gas inside the light bulb helps extend the lifespan of the light bulb by slowing the evaporation process of the tungsten.

What does a light bulb have to do with an electrical light source?
A light bulb is a source of electric light. In an incandescent light bulb, the glass bulb forms a protective shield around a glowing filament. The air inside the glass bulb is removed, or replaced with an inert gas. Electric current is passed through a thin metal filament (usually tungsten), which causes it to glow white hot, giving out light. The protective bulb stops the filament from burning up, as it has no Oxygen.
