Which type of light is good ? Fluorescent lamp or incandescent lamp..!
I think both of the lamp has their own advantages and disadvantages. Well the main of those points are
1)Fluorescent lamp emits less heat but incandescent lamp generates huge temperature around it.
2) Fluorescent lamp consumes less electricity but the light intensity also less where as incandescent lamp consume more electricity and the intensity of light is higher than others.

Working principle of both the lights are also very similar. I came to know about the working mechanism of Fluorescent lamp from .It was quite interesting. But is there any big difference between these two lights..? Will it


Incandescent bulbs are generally less harmful if broken. Florescent bulbs contain: argon, mercury vapor, tungsten, barium, strontium and calcium oxides.
If there is any risk of the bulb breaking such as a gymnasium, workshop, etc.. it can be safer to use incandescent bulbs.

Easy bake ovens use incandescent bulbs since they utilize the heat to bake the food.

Incandescent bulbs are cheaper, so if you're on a budget they can be more accessible. Also, for some devices such as flashlights, many can only accept incandescent bulbs.

In summary, there is utility for incandescent bulbs still. They both have their uses, but no, florescent bulbs should not always be used over incandescent

Fluorescent bulbs are the practical evolution that people should switch to instead of incandescent bulbs. Despite being considered hazardous material at the end of its life or if broken, fluorescent lamps throughout their lives last longer and are more efficient than incandescent bulbs. Incandescent bulbs utilize less than five percent of the energy they consume while fluorescent bulbs use about twenty two percent and last about ten to twenty times longer than the average incandescent bulb. Despite costing more, the longevity and reliability of fluorescent bulbs makes them a more efficient option for large scale use.
