After reading the Re:What gases are in a black light bulb and how does it work, I was still left wondering what the differences are between other light bulbs, and black lights. What is the phosphor coating used and is there a chemical fomula for it? Are there any other types of glass used except dark blue to create the image. Also, what is the dye talked about on the bulb? Is there a specific chemical formula for it? This information is for a class chemisty assignment about the chemistry behind a black light. Any information would be helpful, thank you.
