What Are the Equivalents Wattage Between Incandescent and Fluorescent Light Bulbs?

The ratio is slightly less than 4:1 So, you would need a fluorescent bulb of about 16 watts power consumption to be equivalent to a 60 watt incandescent bulb. Most compact fluorescent bulb packages show the equivalent incandescent lamp size

1. I broke a fluorescent light bulb in my bedroom, will I be okay?

okay this is a pretty big deal mercury is a very toxic sustance and should honestly be cleaned by proffesionals...call up an agency of some kind (maybes even place that made lightbulb you were using) and ask for professional advice. in the meantime i would keep my distance from the spill, open a window, or better yet leave room in general. hope this helps.

2. Why do environmentalists favor the fluorescent light bulbs when they contain mercury?

the same reason they have not considered how to dispose of the batteries in hybrid vehicles. yep, saves gas in the short term, but if we all drove hybrids ther would be millions of old batteries within 7 years. not only will we have to pay to buy new ones, we will be forced to pay to dispose of the old ones. I think the new bulds are a good idea, but they do not work with dimmer switches. which i have in most rooms of my house

3. Compact fluorescent light bulbs: how many of you are changing to them?

Never. My skin looks better with incandescent

4. Why Are My New Fluorescent Light Bulbs Flickering?

Crap bulbs, return them and get new one

5. Plant for office with constant fluorescent light, but no sunlight?

a varigated bonsai ficus will do

6. Is fluorescent light harmful?

All light is essentially electro-magnetic radiation, and as such, can be dangerous with large enough dose. Sunlight is dangerous. Your TV is dangerous. Lightning bugs are dangerous. Are you likely to get a large enough dose to cause physical harm? Well, I do not know, are you going to power up 700,000 of them with parabolic reflectors to aim all the light at your naked flesh? No? Then I would not worry about it.

7. Anyone else have a problem with Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) bulbs?

I bought a 3pak, and although they were spendy, they have lasted almost 2 years so far. I then saw they had three paks for almost a third of the cost at the local Walmart, so I bought five. These cfl bulbs lasted about 2 weeks, and simply do not work after awhile, no burn or scorch marks like on normal tube style lights. After opening the last package, I noticed something. "Made in China". The US made cfls are still going strong, and I have a big bag of Chinese crap to take to the Haz Waste center. I guess "cheaper" means more than the price.

8. Would plants grow well under a green fluorescent light? Explain?

No, plants reflect green light, that is why they are green. Green light will provides no photosynthetic capability to the plant at all

9. What happens if water hits a fluorescent light bulb?

Any light fixture not just florescent. You just happened to have florescent

10. What's the difference between incandescent and fluorescent light?

This Site Might Help You. RE: What is the difference between incandescent and fluorescent light? Other than one emitting red light and te other giving off blue?

11. Can i grow plants with a fluorescent light?

They do quite well actually. If the fluorescent has a blue tint it's even better. In fact, there are special "grow lights" that are blue light bulbs marketed especially for that

12. is a fluorescent light bulb beter than a type a lightbulb?

Yes, they use tons less energy. This is why so many people are now buying CFLs instead of regular household lightbulbs

13. Are fluorescent light bulbs just the test for when Obama and the Democrat Party says AM radios are obsolete?

Am radio is only for people who like to call Rush Limbaugh and rant. That's why hardly any one uses AM radio

14. What is your opinion on compact fluorescent light bulbs?

I do not like them heard of to many fires, plus unless you have an awful lot of lights on all day it wo not save a significant amount

Which Are Better for a House Fluorescent Light-bulbs Or LED Lights?
led's. Their brightness is nice, and the bulbs are cool to the touch. Flourescent bulbs make weird colored rooms. Leds are pretty expensive though. But I still prefer them.1. question about audio capacitor and (led) lights on them?That's weird... I have some no name capacitor and the LED does stay on for a little while after I turn the car on, but then shuts off, until I turn the car back on. Not sure why yours continues to read the voltage... Do you have the cap going straight to the battery and grounded straight to the car? But as to your direct question, I do not believe it will kill your battery, I am sure it will drain it somewhat though. Many cars have flashing LEDs for there alarms and what not, and the batteries do not die2. What one thing can everybody on the planet start doing today, to combat global warmimg?Replace a light bulb with a CFL. They are now available in a variety of spectral outputs (colors of light), come on instantly, and for lower prices. They save you money, and save you the nuisance of changing them frequently. Next May, LED lights will be coming out that are specified to match the old-fashioned incandescent bulbs.3. do power caps require a remote wire to turn off when you shut the car off my led lights stay on?Like Steve N. said, It's just the capacitor discharging. Capacitors are made to store the energy that the amplifier pulls straight from the battery that would normally dim your headlights, BUT there is one catch. Under extended periods of use, that capacitor can only store so much energy before it has to.... You guessed it. Discharge. And believe me, you will know when it does! Think of it as filling a bucket of water. Once it has reached its maximum capacity, it will have to dump it. In my opinion, capacitors are completely useless. If one of my customers is concerned about power issues, my first suggestion to them is to do what is called the "Big Three" wiring upgrade. For some vehicles, that will allow you to run a fairly high wattage amp without making major upgrades like adding a second battery, bigger alternator, etc... For the money you spend on a name brand capacitor, you can have a high quality wiring upgrade under your hood that will supply you up to 25% more voltage out of your alternator. If you would like me to go into further detail about the upgrade, just email me :) Hope this helps!4. Garden and being Green help please :)?1) Use plant indigenous to your area, they generally require less water, fertilizer and pesticides, wo not introduce nasty foreign invasive species and are far less to bring in bugs from other areas. 2) Compost your leaves every fall instead of burning them. Then, use the stuff from the bottom of the pile. Saves on both end and you get a lot more (depending on your yard) then traditional compost from banana peels, etc. 3) Use rocks from your area as borders, or to accent your garden (big ones can truly be beautiful, and I use a few to put bird baths on 4) Use water features (they can be very simple) to attract native birds. they have a great pest control device that is safe for pets and kids that we used to get rid of ground hogs, rabbits etc. did not kill or hurt them, just drove them away. 6) Replace any electrical security flood or spot lights with solar powered ones. Work just as well and save tons on electricity. 7) Keep away from things like rubber tires, railroad ties (creosote) and pressure treated wood (arsenic, formaldehyde etc.) 8) Use halogen or LED lights in your house instead of CFLs (mercury) and incandescents 9) Cow manure (let it dry first, or buy dried composted cow manure so it wo not burn things. There are sites listed below that you can go to and look-up types of plants and other suggestions by your specific geographic region, and also urban, rural, suburban, etc.5. Can I wire LED lights into my amp?I did that years in the past. initiate via checking the speaker for ability in watts & resistance in ohms. E squared = P X R or E = the sq. root of P situations R , supplying you with the optimal voltage on each and each speaker leg. Then compute the resistance necessary ( if any) . The Frequency would not count number because it is Variable
