Sample text

Since an area of 1 square foot on the surface of a sphere of 1foot radius subtends a unit solid angle (that is, one steradian) at the center of the sphere, the lumen may also be defined as the amount of light emitted in a unit solid angle by a source having an average intensity of 1 candela throughout the solid angle. 57 (4π) lumens of flux for every candela of intensity. The Measurement of Illuminance Let us consider a light source the cause of illumination, which is the effect or result. Since candelas and lumens are both a measure of the cause, they apply only to the light source and not the effect obtained.

14), since the light is actually being emitted into a hemisphere of unit (1-foot) radius, and IT is the ratio of the radius to the surface area of the hemisphere (IT ϭ A/(2r)2). 73 candelas per square foot. To avoid the necessity of dividing by π all the time, the concept of a footlambert was invented. The footlambert is defined as 1 divided by π candelas per square foot. Thus the above relationship reduces to: Luminance ϭ Illuminance ϫ reflectance 1. Footlambert ϭ footcandle ϫ reflectance LϭKϫE (Eq.

It should be noted that this value is related to the total light output of the lamp. In each of these cases, the intensity is determined through comparison to a standard lamp at a variety of distances. The Measurement of Flux Flux (sometimes called luminous flux) is the rate at which a source emits light in all directions. The flux of a source is usually calculated from measurements of intensity and is closely related to the measurement of mean spherical intensity previously discussed. The unit of measurement is the lumen.
