## Inverse Square Law Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Luminance = Intensity of Transmitted Light/Distance^2
Lv = It/d^2
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Luminance - (Measured in Lux) - Luminance describes the amount of light that is emitted from, passed through, or reflected off an object. It is measured using candela per square meter.
Intensity of Transmitted Light - (Measured in Candela) - The intensity of transmitted light varies as the square of the cosine of the angle between the two planes of transmission.
Distance - (Measured in Meter) - The distance from the light source.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Intensity of Transmitted Light: 21 Candela --> 21 Candela No Conversion Required
Distance: 4.54 Meter --> 4.54 Meter No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Lv = It/d^2 --> 21/4.54^2
Evaluating ... ...
Lv = 1.01884375788391
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
1.01884375788391 Lux -->1.01884375788391 Candela Steradian per Sq Meter (Check conversion here)

## < 7 Laws of Illumination Calculators

Beer-Lambert Law
Intensity of Transmitted Light = Intensity of Light Entering the Material*exp(-Absorption Per Concentration Coefficient*Concentration of Absorption Material*Path Length)
Fresnel's Law of Reflection
Reflection Loss = (Refractive Index of Medium 2-Refractive Index of Medium 1)^2/(Refractive Index of Medium 2+Refractive Index of Medium 1)^2
Refracted Angle using Snell's Law
Refracted Angle = arcsinh((Refractive Index of Medium 1*sin(Incident Angle))/(Refractive Index of Medium 2))
Incident Angle using Snell's Law
Incident Angle = arcsinh((Refractive Index of Medium 2*sin(Refracted Angle))/(Refractive Index of Medium 1))
Illumination by Lambert Cosine Law
Illumination Intensity = (Luminous Intensity*cos(Illumination Angle))/(Length of Illumination^2)
Lambert's Cosine Law
Illuminance at Angle of Incidence = Illumination Intensity*cos(Incident Angle)
Inverse Square Law
Luminance = Intensity of Transmitted Light/Distance^2

## Inverse Square Law Formula

Luminance = Intensity of Transmitted Light/Distance^2
Lv = It/d^2

## What law is inverse square?

Newton's law states: The gravitational attraction force between two point masses is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of their separation distance.

## How to Calculate Inverse Square Law?

Inverse Square Law calculator uses Luminance = Intensity of Transmitted Light/Distance^2 to calculate the Luminance, The Inverse Square Law formula is defined as a law stating that the intensity of an effect such as illumination or gravitational force changes in inverse proportion to the square of the distance from the source. Luminance is denoted by Lv symbol.
