I have a circuit with a 3,5 V lamp that has a tungsten filament. I can provide to the circuit a variable voltage. How would I find the melting temperature of tungsten?
I know p_20 and alpha and the voltage I provide. And I have an device to measure current too.
Could I just increase voltage until the lamp turns off (which means the tungsten filament melted), measure the current and by means of Ohm's Law I could find the resistance. And then with the initial formula, I could find the temperature to which corresponds this resistance.
Am i right? Sorry my poor English.
