NopeNo, potential energy would be, for instance, a spring that is compressed. It could cause motion if released. It is stored energy. The light bulb uses electrical energy, which it converts to light and heat energy.

potential energy is like when you wind up a torch or a radio

When energy runs through a light bulb what kind of energy does the light bulb produce?

A light bulb uses electrical energy, and produces light, as well as heat.


Does an incandescent bulb and a light stick use the same form of energy to create light?

No. The incandescent bulb uses electrical energy and the light stick uses chemical energy.


What type of energy does a Light Bulb uses?

electric energy


What kind of energy is a light bulb?

A light bulb is not energy, but is a device that uses electrical energy to create electromagnetic energy in the form (in part) of visible light and heat.


What does an energy saving light bulb do?

It uses less energy to produce the same amount of illumination as a standard light bulb


Non-living thing that uses energy?

A light bulb uses energy. It uses electricity.


Do fans or lights use more energy?

energy is energy It does not matter what you are using the energy for, it matters how much energy you are using A 200 watt light bulb uses more energy than a 100 watt light bulb A 200 watt motor uses more energy than a 100 watt light bulb A 200 watt heater uses more energy than a 100 watt light bulb


What type of energy is turning on a light bulb?

The light bulb uses electrical energy, and produces light, as well as waste heat. The act of turning it on in itself uses a small amount of energy stored in your muscles.


Is a light bulb an energy source?

No.it uses energy sources (electrical energy to light up


What is a word that means a light bulb that uses more energy than a fluorescent light bulb?

incandescent


Does a regular light bulb use more energy than a fluorescent light bulb?

Yes, an incandescent bulb uses more energy than a fluorescent bulb and a fluorescent light bulb lasts about 10 times longer.


What uses more electricity a lit light bulb or an empty socket of the same rating switched on?

When the bulb is lit it uses energy. When there is no bulb, no energy is used even if it is switched on.


Does a light bulb convert light in to chemical energy?

No a light bulb does not use chemical energy. Even though it uses the chemical mercury to create light. Hope this helps =)


What type of energy makes a light bulb glow?

An electric light bulb converts electrical energy into thermal energy which is in the form of radiated light and heat. For example, the " easy bake oven" uses a light bulb to cook the food.


What is the job of a light bulb?

The job of a light bulb is to convert electrical energy into visible light energy. (Not ALL of the electrical energy a bulb uses is converted to light energy. Their efficiency is quite low. An incandescent light bulb is more efficient as a heater than as a source of visible light. Fortunately, our eyes are very sensitive.)


Why do you convert energy?

That's because you need it in specific forms, either to transport it, or to actually use it. As an example, a hydraulic energy plant uses mechanical energy (potential energy in the water); this is converted to electrical energy, transported to our homes, and then converted to light in a light bulb (among many other uses!). In this example, we have no direct use of the potential energy as such; the energy is converted to electrical energy which is easy to transport, and easy to convert to other forms of energy - such as light in this case.

What are the uses of Heat energy


What is the energy conversion in an electric bulb?

It uses electrical energy, and outputs light, since that's the whole purpose of the light bulb. It also outputs waste heat.
