## Homework Statement

If you have a 100 W bulb and a 60 W bulb connected to separate electrical outlets, which will be brighter? Which has more resistance? Explain.

**2. Necessary formulas**

P=IV and (maybe?) I=V/R

3. The Attempt at a Solution

3. The Attempt at a Solution

I know for sure the 100 W bulb is brighter. However, when it came to the resistance part, I’m confused. (When we solved this in class, it was that the 100 W had less resistance, but I don’t understand how we got to that part. Someone had told me that the outlets would have the same voltage drop, but I’m not sure about that.)

Thanks in advance to those who can help.
