A 40W bulb is switched on. It burns out brighter when it was switched on than a short time later.What account for this change in brightness

asked by samuel
  1. resistance least when cool, current higher then, Power = i V . That is why those incandescent bulbs often burned out instantly when the switch was turned on.

    You are in the lab with a 10 V battery. You have a 10 W light bulb and you want to put 1/2 A of current through the light bulb and 5 V across the light bulb. This will allow the light bulb to have a brightness proportional to 2.5
