How does a fluorescent light bulb work?

Category: Home Improvement

Answer:

Fluorescent light bulbs produce light differently than a regular incandescent bulb. They are typically more energy-efficient because instead of generating light using heat, they contain a gas that produces invisible UV light. This UV light is activated by a white chemical inside the bulb.
