Yes. A 60W bulb has a higher resistance than the 40W buld. The extra resistance requires more current to light up the bulb. The fillament then glows brighter.

Why is the Cable of a cooker thicker than the cable of a table light?

More electricity needed by a cooker requires a thicker cable than for a table lamp.


Which is more preferable fluorescent or incandescent bulbs?

In terms of energy efficiency, a fluorescent lamp has a greater efficacy than an incandescent lamp -in other words, it will require a smaller input power to produce the same number of lumens. In terms of the environment, a fluorescent lamp contains mercury, has far more components, and requires more energy to manufacture than an incandescent lamp, so is more hazardous to the environment.


Principle of operation of UV lamp?

A fluorescent lamp or fluorescent tube is a gas-discharge lamp that uses electricity to excite mercury vapor. The excited mercury atoms produce short-wave ultraviolet light that then causes a phosphor to fluoresce, producing visible light. A fluorescent lamp converts electrical power into useful light more efficiently than an incandescent lamp. Lower energy cost typically offsets the higher initial cost of the lamp. The lamp is more costly because it requires a ballast to regulate the flow of current through the lamp.

Because the sun has more radiation than a lamp.



Will a lamp with a thick filament draw more current or less current than a lamp with a thin filament?

The lamp with a thick filament will draw more current than a lamp with a thin filament. Thick filament has more surface area to excite and release electrons, so it will require more current.


What is a type B lamp?

The term "Type B lamp" actually refers to the type of bulb the lamp requires. Type B bulb is a small version with a smaller wattage than of your typical, general purpose lamp bulbs. They are often used in Tiffany-style lamps that require a smaller bulb. The lamps are named such because they are smaller, with a small bulb requirement but standard size bulb socket. You can buy B-Type bulbs at almost any lighting dealer.

When does the lamp on your tv die after the warning?

There is no way to know for certain when the lamp will die, but when the light comes on, the power to the lamp has detected the increase in current, which is indicative of a lamp that is about to burn out. I would purchase a replacement lamp and have it on hand when the bulb goes out. I would expect you will get no more than a couple of weeks use from this old lamp.


Can you go green with a modern floor lamp?

An environmentally friendly modern floor lamp is much easier to purchase than it would have been a few years ago. However, it does prove to be more expensive than a "normal" floor lamp. A simple way of achieving a greener lamp is by using a energy saving light bulb. Alternatively a solar powered lamp can be purchased.

Why does a 25 watt bulb glow brighter than 60 watt in a series circuit?

Because the filament of a 25-W lamp has a higher resistance than that of a 60-W lamp and, therefore, will experience a greater voltage drop -the lamp with the voltage drop closer to its rated voltage (in this case, the 25-W lamp) will be the brighter.
