1 Introduction

An incandescent lightbulb (also called filament lamp) is a two-terminal

passive nonlinear device whose voltage-current (v-i) characteristic is a bi-

lateral power-law function of the form illustrated in Fig. 1. Increasing the

voltage heats the filament and increases the filament’s resistance. As a re-

sult, the current’s rate of change decreases as indicated by the bend of the

v-i curve.

lightbulb.

+1, v > 0,

sgn(v) = 0, v = 0, (2)

−1, v < 0.

In (1), G and p are real constants, the former denoting the nonlinear con-

ductance and the latter the power-law exponent.

We obtained (v-i) data for three different lightbulbs (Figures 2–??). Be-

cause of the bilateral property, it sufficed to get data for v > 0 only.

Our goal is to find functions of the form of (1) that fit the data. The re-

sults in Sections 2–4 show that the functions match the data very accurately.

2 Lightbulb No. 1

2.1 Voltage-Current Data

Fig. 4 displays the (v-i) data for Lightbulb No. 1; the data are listed in Table

1. It is evident that the data in Fig. 4 follow a power-law shape similar to

the curve in Fig. 1.

The v-i data for Lightbulb No. 1 admit the following three statistically in-

distinguishable fitted functions:

î = 33.22 v 0.51 , (4)

î = 32.56 v 0.52 , (5)

The three functions fit the data very accurately, with R2 > 0.999 for all

three. As might be expected, the fits are highly statistically significant with

the p-value being close to zero.1

The “p-value” is a probability used to assess statistical significance and should not be

confused with the exponent “p” in (1).

î obtained with one function does not differ statistically from the estimates

obtained with either of the other two functions. This is evident in Fig. 5,

which plots the measured (v-i) data, the three fitted functions, and the 95%

confidence intervals of î for (4). The figure shows that the estimates obtained

with all three functions fall within the confidence intervals displayed. There-

fore, we can select any of the three functions to obtain î; (3) would be the

parsimonious pick.

We tested five cases: p = 0.49, 0.50, 0.51, 0.52, 0.53. Fig. 6 plots R2 for

the five cases and shows that all five have high R2 , the largest values cor-

responding to the middle three cases whose respective R2 values differ only

slightly.

Fig. 7 shows that G is a linear function of p described by G ≈ 67.14 −

66.49 p, which is a very accurate least-squares fit. Note that all the confidence

intervals are about the same length.

3 Lightbulb No. 2

3.1 Voltage-current Data

Fig. 8 displays the (v-i) data for Lightbulb No. 2; the data are listed in Table

2. As with Lightbulb No. 1, the data in Fig. 8 follow a power-law shape

similar to the curve in Fig. 1.

The function that best matches the v-i data for Lightbulb No. 2 is

In this case, p = 0.56 whereas for Lightbulb No. 1 the best fit occurs with

0.50 ≤ p ≤ 0.52. As was the case with the functions for Lightbulb No. 1,

(6) matches the data very accurately having R2 > 0.999. Moreover, the fit

is highly statistically significant with the p-value being close to zero. Fig.

9 compares (6) with the function î = 60.08 v 0.50 . The figure shows that (6)

matches the data much better even though R2 = 0.99757 when p = 0.50.

We tested the cases p = 0.50, 0.52, 0.54, 0.56, 0.58, 0.60, 0.62. Fig. 10

shows that all the cases have high R2 . The highest R2 values correspond

to p = 0.54, 0.56, 0.58, whose respective R2 differ only slightly.

95.06 p, which is a very accurate least-squares fit. Note that the length of the

confidence intervals varies. The smallest interval corresponds to p = 0.56,

which supports our selection of (6) as the best fit.

4.1 Voltage-current Data

Fig. 12 displays the (v-i) data for Lightbulb No. 3; the data are listed in

Table 3. As expected, the data in Fig. 12 follow a power-law shape similar

to the curve in Fig. 1. Note that

(7) matches the data very accurately having R2 > 0.999. The fit is highly

statistically significant with the p-value being close to zero. Fig. 13 compares

(7) with the function î = 45.44 v 0.50 . The figure shows that (7) matches the

data much better even though R2 = 0.99789 for p = 0.50.

shows that all the cases have high R2 . The highest R2 values correspond

to p = 0.54, 0.56, 0.58, whose respective R2 differ only slightly.

Fig. 15 shows that G is a linear function of p described by G ≈ 84.53 −

78.38 p, which is a very accurate least-squares fit. Note that the length of the

confidence intervals varies. The smallest interval corresponds to p = 0.56,

which supports our selection of (7) as the best fit.
