Organization: University of Texas
If a lit flourescent light was suddenly placed in a hard
vacuum, is there sufficient gas pressure on in interior to shatter the
glass tube? If so, how many tenths of a second (or, more precisely,
how many 12fps frames of a animation) would it continue to emit
visible light before diffusing? Probably no more than 4-6 frames?
