    Conversion CP to LUM to Watts

    Quick question, How do you convert Candle Power to Lumens? I have a 10 Million CP light and wonder how many lumens that is. The bulb is 100 watts I believe.

    Rather than give you a short (and necessarily incomplete and inaccurate) response, I'll refer you here: http://forum.onlineconversion.com/showthread.php?t=5518

    Read the entire discussion, but the key is in post #3 -- comparing lumens to candlepower is a bit like comparing apples to peaches.
