Will fan and medal please help!!! The metal wire in an incandescent lightbulb glows when the light is switched on and stops glowing when it is switched off. This simple process is which kind of a change? a physical change a chemical change a nuclear change an ionic change

    Why do you think the wire glows?

    i would say, this is an example of resistance, which provides light and heat. which means it's a ------- change ?

    Because it provided light and heat?

    Hmm..The metal wire in an incandescent lightbulb glows when the light is switched on and stops glowing when it is switched off. This simple process which takes placethrough chemical reactions in a process called bioluminescence

    And so i suggest chemical change... not physical as no change in bulbs coil takes place,and not ionic as ionic changes produce no light.

    I think that the process is a physical change.

    @Cuanchi \(Good~Question~!\) Well, does burning of film, when a bulb glows shows any physical change to its surrounding glass or the film ? film glows bcuz of heat but doesn't change the film or its shape. but when you refer luminescence you find the real change.

    I'm not sure what it was cause when I said chemical it said incorrect, but I passed the rest...
