Most bulbs are measured in eighths of an inch so a G-25 is 25/8 of an inch or 3 and 1/8 inches in diameter or an R40 is 5" in diameter. An MR16 is 2" in diameter.
Reflector bulbs have reflective silver coatings to force the light (and heat) out the front of the bulb for use in closed fixtures like track and recessed lights. Reflector bulbs come in different beamspreads (from narrow spot to wide flood). If the face is clear, then it is a spot bulb and if the face is frosted, then it is a flood bulb. PAR bulbs have a heavy glass coating which allows them to be used in outdoor fixtures without a cover.
Line voltage bulbs operate on regular 120 volt household current. 130 volt bulbs are built to be more durable and last longer. 12-volt bulbs need a transformer to convert the voltage from 120 to 12 volts. Low-voltage systems are safer and more efficient for the wattage.
Three-way light bulbs have 2 filaments in them which allow for each separately or both together, i.e. a 3-way 50-100-150 watt bulb has a 50 watt filament and a 100 watt filament and when they are both on, you get 150 watts.
