    But you just said chemistry....
    Some Sahibisms are hard to understand, just like quantum physics...

    Depends. Watts is the power consumption, more wattage means a higher electric bill. But too low wattage and the brightness of the light might not be enough. You need to determine what lumen level lights do you want and then settle on the lowest wattage in that lumen range to get the most efficient bulb.
    I'll stop blubbering about bulbs now😀
    You'll confused him now. most people don't go by lumen output.

    yes I said chemistry because that was the class I took in high school. during the course my class went over a physics section just to give you a general gist of it and I had trouble understanding it
    That would be related to physical chemistry which is quite different than physics per se.

    You need both pieces of the puzzle to come out ahead energy wise. I could have thrown a slight wrench by also confounding lumen output with the type of light😁

    Don't buy dimmable unless you have a dimmer. No point paying the extra cash.

    Obviously the lower the wattage equivalent the lower the LED true wattage.

    Most people just replace what you have, though you should consider if you can go lower. If, for example, your lighting fixture has three bulbs in it, all at 50W, do you need that much light?

    Also, be sure to buy wide angle as well.
    oh ok .... makes sense ..

    nope that is something I didn't think of. I was just planning to replace all the old CFL light blubs with light blub replacements

    does it have to do with the nature of LED only pointing in one direction ?

    ok now that is getting into specifics how am I suppost to figure that out ._.? all I know 60 watts seems to be the starting place

    Go to Home Depot and look at the various light type bulbs, then once you like the type of light settle on wattage and then the LED bulb. Easy, peasy...

    but it wasn't that :/ the reason why they wanted us to go over physics was that next year ( at the time I was a junior) they were going to offer physics and wanted us to learn a little bit of physics hoping it would interest some students ( obviously it did ). I didn't take it because I couldn't wrap my head around it.

    all I know is the higher the lumens the brighter the blub is but the more energy it uses .... right ?

    Yes, but white light bulbs give you more lumens (brighter light) compared to soft white bulbs at the same wattage level. In USA and Europe people prefer soft white light. In Asia and Latin America ( where electricity is expensive) people prefer the white light because it is cheaper and brighter.

    A little research and patience is necessary. And that is why/how most people end up making uninformed decisions because they lack these basic skills.
