What is the difference between sunlight and light bulb?
Herein, what is the difference between artificial light and sunlight?
Description. While natural light is produced by the sun, artificial light sources can include incandescent bulbs, fluorescent tubes and light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Sunlight contains all the colors of the spectrum, which is necessary for photosynthesis in plants.
Secondly, do plants need sun or just light? Some species require large amounts of sunlight, while others can survive on little. While all plants do need some sunlight to photosynthesize, they don't all require six hours of sunlight daily. Plant species' light requirements vary and some need full sun, while others thrive in partial sun or shade.
Herein, what is a type of light that both the sun and a light bulb emit?
Both the sun and the light bulb emit so-called "Blackbody radiation." This is the particular spectrum of light that's associated with the random thermal emissions of a hot object.
How bright is the sun compared to a light bulb?
Actually, the luminosity of the Sun is about 1600 times higher than that - meaning that the Sun is about 1000 times brighter than than a 100 Watt light bulb in a distance of three metres.
