    You might try reading the ebook elsewhere in this site concerning electricity, and start asking questions from there. We'll try to answer any questions you have, but you need certain basics before you can understand the answers.

    A filament is usually made of tungsten. This is because tungsten can become very hot and not melt, is conductive, and very mailable. The original filament Edison created for his first light bulb was carbon, made by charcoaling a piece of cotton.

    Hertz is a unit of measurement for AC electricity, audio, and RF. It is defined as as Cycles per second. It is not always electricity though, just a unit of measurement.
