  1. What is the purpose of the phosphor coating in fluorescent lamps?



    • 
    To produce invisible, short-wave radiation by the discharge through the mercury vapor

    •

    • 
    To cause the electrodes at each end to glow

    • 
    To cause the heat from the vaporized mercury to make the phosphor coating give off light
