Explain whether the photons emitted by a bright light bulb are more energetic than those emitted by a dim light bulb of the same color. How does the color of the light bulbs determine the amount of energy of the electromagnetic waves?

The luminosity of a light bulb is based on intensity. The more intense the photons are, the brighter the light bulb is.
