    A proper explanation would take many pages worth of typing. 

     

    Look it up on Wikipedia.

    it was used in old tvs ....

    it had a yoke for sweeping electrons ... left to right and bottom to top

    it emits electrons ,,, depending on the video signal level,the electrons get velocity...higher levels make the screen white ... lower ones make black and between them makes gray ...so a staircase video will show eight bars from  white to black on the screen

    It is a vacuum tube inside the a old box television set.

    It has three laser guns that shoots ions into the phosper thus creating an image on the screen.

    The cathode-ray tube (CRT) is a vacuum tube that contains one or more electron guns and a phosphorescent screen and is used to display images.  It was mainly used on old televisions, computer monitors, radar, and sonar
