Is it really valid to assume the current in a light globe is the same for
50Hz as 100kHz? I would suspect that the "coiled coil" tungsten filament
may alter this. It might be interesting to compare this to another method
of current readings such as with a high speed bridge rectifier feeding a
capacitor and a DC ammeter.

Whenever this comes up I always like to show this picture-
..it takes 125mA RMS to light fully. It lit more than fully- the filament ..
was melted in the first few seconds ...
