A 60 watt light bulb is a light bulb with 60 watts capacity. When talking about watts, you're talking about the power that is transferred from the appliance to the accessories. Therefore, the light bulb labeled "60 watts" takes 60 watts to light up. A 60 watt light bulb will not be as bright as a 120 watt light bulb.

A 60 watt light bulb is a light bulb that, at rated voltage, will dissipate 60 watts.

A watt is a measurement of electricity, usually pertaining to light. Light bulbs luminosity is graded by wattage, such as a 60 watt bulb, 100 watt bulb and so on. You would find a watt in a light bulb, to start.

Not in energy used. But possibly in light produced.

it's 100 divided by 60 and multiplied by 100, equal to 166%

The 60 watt bulb will consume less energy and not be as bright as a 100 watt bulb. Most bulb sockets will specify a recommended bulb rating.

"A standard light bulb I would consider to be a 60 watt light bulb, and kilowatts are the amount of usage in a light bulb. From my research I have found that a standard 60 watt light bulb uses approximately 1.44 Kilowatts per hour."

No way to know. Light is not proportional to watts. You could have a "30-watt bulb" that produces 50 times more light than an inefficient 60-watt bulb, depending upon what technology is used in each bulb.

yes,but you cannot light up over or a 60 watt light bulb it has to be below 60 watts

the answer is no you can not grow weed with a 60 watt light Really my ones grew with a 40 watt mercury light and a 20 watt argon bulb

Yes, eventually. The components of the light itself are only designed to handle the heat of the 45 watt bulb. The extra heat from the 60 watt bulb would eventually damage parts of the light, including the wires.

Watts is Watts and has no relation to time. w=v*a (west Virginia varsity). A 60 watt light bulb is 60 watts regardless of how long it is on. Watt hours would be what PG&E bills you for.

Yes, a 103 volt source will light a 60 watt light bulb. The relationship of the bulb's wattage output at a lower voltage, as to the normal voltage that the bulb is rated to operate on, the light output will be lower.

A 60 watt bulb at 12 volts will pull 5 amps of current.

A light bulb of 60 watts if we leave it on for an hour it will use 60 watt hours or .06 kWh.

which has more resistance 100 watt bulb or 60 watt bulb? In short, the 60 watt bulb has more resistance. Power can be calculated using the following formula: P = (V^2)/R The power rating for a light bulb is measured using a 120 Volt source. Since the voltage will be the same for both light bulbs, using the formula, the bulb with the lowest resistance would have the greatest power.

in short yes.. the higher the wattage the higher the heat output.. this goes from pretty much every form of lighting we have.

60 watts. This means that the 40 watt bulb uses less electricity but it also produces less light.

A Watt is a Joule per second. Joules measure energy and Watts measure power, which is the rate of energy used. Therefore, if you use a 60 Watt light bulb for 10 seconds, you consume 600 Joules.

Assuming the bulb is connected to the proper voltage, all 60 watts of energy are "lost" in a light bulb, mostly converted to heat and a small amount as visible light. If you meant how much energy is used to create a 60 watt bulb, that's completely different.

A 60 Watt bulb uses a power of 60 Watts as long as it is switched on. Power is the rate of converting energy. In one hour, the energy used is 60 Watt-hours. One Watt-hour is an amount of energy equal to 3600 Joules.
