Thomas Alva Edison got motivated to invent light bulbs because in olden 1800’s people used candles gas and oil lamps
to light their homes. These lamps left soot all over the walls and caused accidents like house fires. So, he wanted to
invent a light bulb which was safe and economical and will be the “Light Of The Future”. So, he wanted to invent a light
bulbn wjich was safe and economical and which will be the “ Light of the Future”. Thomas Edison had ear problems
which motivated him to read books and that helped him in a lot of inventions. He was motivated to give this dark world
which had no light except the sun. He even got motivated to invent light bulb because he learnt from his failure, never
lose patience, hard work and managing time. He also got motivated because his experiences using candles and oil
lamps was very frightful. So,Causation
that’s how he got motivated to invent a “Electric Light Bulb”.
