50w bulb &150W bulb connected in series....which one will glow brighter?

Expert Answer:

150 W will glow brighter.

Since they are connected in series, same amount of current will flow through both of them.

But higher wattage means higher resistance, and higher resistance means more energy dissipation and brightness.
