### Can you use a 75 watt bulb if it says 60 watts?

Usually the 60-watt limit is used to prevent the lampshade overheating, so a 75-watt bulb should not be used. But if more brightness is required, try a low-energy bulb because a 15-watt one gives the same light as a 75-watt incandescent (old-style) bulb. Or a 20-watt would be even brighter.

### What does 60 watt mean on a light bulb?

It means that 60 units of electricity is passing through the circuit when it is on.

### Does a 60-watt electric light bulb create heat energy?

Yes. Part of the energy is converted to light, part to heat. The percentage depends on the type of light bulb. Fluorescent and LED light bulbs are more efficient than incandescent light bulbs.
