Give the construction and working of electric bulb?

In an electric bulb there are two metal contacts at the base which connect to the ends of an electrical circuit. The metal contacts are attached to two stiff wires which are attached to a thin metal filament. You can observe this filament in the middle of the bulb, held up by a glass mount. The wires and the filament are housed in a glass bulb, which is filled with an inert gas, such as argon.

The current flowing through the filament of the bulb heats the filament and makes it to emit light in the visible range. The power dissipated in the filament is given by P = VI = I2R. Where, V is the voltage applied across the filament, I is the current through the filament and R is the resistance of the filament.

when electricity passes through an eletric buld the filament gets heated up which makes the surrounding air molecules heated and produces light. tugtsun is the material which is used for making the filament of a bulb as it has high heat withstanding capacity
