### How many ohms is the resistance of the bulb?

A lamp has two resistances: a 'hot'
resistance (its operating resistance) and its 'cold'
resistance (its resistance when switched off), and the hot
resistance is significantly higher than its cold resistance.
You can calculate its 'hot' resistance from its rated power and
its rated voltage (assuming that it is being supplied at its rated
voltage), by manipulating the following equation, to make R
the subject: P= V2/R
You will, though, have to measure its cold
resistance.
