# How many volts are needed to power a 60 watt light bulb?

MaxLite 60 Watt Incandescent Equivalent,

**13**Watt,**120 Volt**A Style CFL Bulb.A.

### How many watts are in 120 volts?

Then you can use ohms law to get an answer: For example, if you have 120 volts and an amperage of 10 amps, multiply 120 x 10 =

**1200 watts**.#### How many watts are in a Volt?

Using Ohms law, you would multiply amperage times volts to get watts. For instance a**12 volt**circuit drawing 2 amps would consume**24**watts of power (12*2=**24**). A 60 watt light bulb powered by**120 volts**in a house would draw .5 amp of current (60/120= .5).#### How many volts are in 1500 Watts?

Watts equals voltage times current, so any two numbers that multiplied together to give you 1500 will work. It does not matter which one you call voltage or current it's the same so: 100 volts at 15amps =1500 watts OR**10 volts**at 150 amps equals 1500 watts, OR 1500 volts at 1 amp = 1500 wattsYou get the idea!#### How many watts is equal to 1 amp?

For example**12 watts**/12 volts = 1 amp.

Converting Amps to Watts.

The conversion of Amps to Watts at fixed voltage is governed by the equation Watts = Amps x Volts.

For example 1 amp ***110**volts =**110 watts**.

### Can I use a 120v bulb in a 250v socket?

**Sockets**are often marked with the voltage rating of the

**socket**. That is the maximum voltage it

**can**withstand without breaking down and arcing. They are designed to

**250V**to work with margin in

**120V**and 230/240 volt useage; they

**can**be

**used**with either of them.

#### What wattage bulb should I use in bathroom?

For dark kitchens and more opaque fixtures, try**100 watts**. If you get a lot of natural light, try using a slightly dimmer**80 watt**bulb. - Bathroom Sconces Keep bathroom sconces around**60-80 watts**(But, this can be split. So two**40 watt**bulbs in a pair of sconces or three**30 watt**bulbs above the mirror for example).#### What does the wattage of a light bulb mean?

With newer**light bulbs**designed to use less energy,**wattage**is no longer a reliable way to gauge a**light bulb's**brightness. That takes lumens. A standard 60-watt incandescent**bulb**, for example, produces about 800 lumens of**light**. By comparison, a CFL**bulb**produces that same 800 lumens using less than 15**watts**.#### What wattage is my light bulb?

Standard 100-**watt bulbs**produce about 1600 lumens.**Watts**-**the**amount of energy**a light bulb**uses.**The**lower**the watts**,**the**lower**the**electric bill. CFLs and LEDs have**a**lower**wattage**than incandescent**bulbs**, but emit**the**same**light**output.
