# Lumens to watts calculator

Luminous flux in lumens (lm) to electric power in watts (W) calculator.

Enter the luminous flux in lumens, luminous efficacy in lumens per watt and press the *Calculate* button to get the power in watts:

* the predefined luminous efficacy values are typical / average values.

## Lumens to watts calculation formula

Energy saving lamps have high luminous efficacy (more lumens per watt).

The power P in watts (W) is equal to the luminous flux *Φ*_{V}
in lumens (lm), divided by the luminous efficacy * η* in lumens per watt (lm/W):

*P*_{(W)} = *Φ*_{V(lm)} /* η*_{(lm/W)}
