How many lumens are in a watt?


There is no standard watt-to-lumen conversion value. The amount of lumens per watt depends on the type of light source that is being measured. A general incandescent light source is measured at 10 to 15 lumens per watt.

Watts measure the amount of energy required to light a product, whereas lumens measure the amount of light produced by the product. The more lumens in a light bulb, the brighter the light. A halogen lamp may have 15 to 25 lumens per watt. A compact fluorescent light can produce 50 to 75 lumens per watt, and LED lamps produce 50 to 100 lumens per watt.

Suppose you want to know how much power a lamp consumes. If you know that its incandescent light bulb has a luminous flux of 1,120 lm - given on the light-bulb box - you need to know
The ratio of lumens to watts is termed the ' efficacy. ' (note, this is not the same thing as 'efficiency' of a lamp. The efficacy of a lamp depends on the. type. of lamp: for example
( ′lü·mən pər ′wät ) (optics) The unit of luminosity factor and of luminous efficacy. Abbreviated lm/w.
he lumen (symbol: lm) is the SI unit of luminous flux, a measure of the perceived power of light. Luminous flux differs from radiant flux, the measure of the total power of light
