Is a 10 watt bulb the same as a normAl 40 watt bulb?

Electrically, a 10-watt bulb uses 75% less energy than a 40-watt bulb. For the same circuit voltage, let's say 120v, a 10-watt bulb would only draw 0.083 amperes, compared to 0.33 A for a 40-watt bulb. Light-output-wise, they may not have the same ratio of light output. If a 40-watt lightbulb provides 400 lumens of light, a 10-watt lightbulb that is more energy-efficient than the 40-watt bulb may produce more than 100 lumens which is greater than 1/4 of the light output of the 40-watt bulb. A 10-watt bulb that is less energy-efficient than the same 40-watt bulb would produce less than 100 lumens of light.
