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.
