Candela and Heat

  1. May 9, 2015 #1
    hello there, i hope you can help me..

    i have a halogen lamp 12V 50watt, in this lamp datasheet, i read there is 1200 cd (MAX).

    is there any way to know how much the heat that lamp produces? without i testing using thermometer ..

    You will have to measure it. The temperature depends on both the source and the environment.
