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.

Which has more resistance a 100 Watt light bulb or a 75 Watt light bulb?

A 75 watt light bulb has more resistance because less current is going through which causes less light.

Which bulb has more resistance a 50 watt or a 100 watt?

Assuming they both run at the same voltage, the one with less resistance will draw more current and more power.

Does a 100 watt bulb put out more light than a 25 watt bulb?

If both are incandescent bulbs, a 100 watt bulb puts out more light than a 25 watt bulb.

Which draws more current a 40 watt bulb or a 100 watt bulb?

Obsly 100watt bulb

Which glows more brightly- a 100-W bulb or a 75-W bulb?

The difference between the power of a 100 watt bulb and a 75 watt bulb is 25 watts. A 100 watt bulb will burn about 25 percent brighter than a 75 watt bulb.

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

Connected in parallel which bulb will glow brighter A 40 watt bulb or a 100 watt bulb?

100 watts

Which bulb uses more electricity40 watts100 watts or 120 watt?

The higher the wattage the more you pay for power. So it costs more to operate a 120 watt bulb than it does a 100 or 40 watt bulb.

How much more money will it cost if you use 100 watt bulb then a 60 watt bulb?

Almost twice as much as 100 is almost twice 60.
