Comparing incandescent lamps and LED lampsFeatured science projectScience project video

Observation

It was observed that the 60W incandescent lamp provided the same brightness as a 7.5W LED lamp, showing that LED lamps provide the same brightness at a lower wattage and power consumption compared to the incandescent lamps.

The above results were then plotted onto a graph, a shown below.

Lamp type LED wattage and luminous intensity (lux)
  1.5W 3.0W 4.5W 6.0W 7.5W 9.0W 10.5W
LED 163 327 458 610 785 883 1187
Incandescent (60W) 812 812 812 812 812 812 812
