Light is a kind of energy or external cause, which enters the eye and gives rise to the feeling of seeing. In the presence of light, we can see an object and without light, we cannot see. The light always goes straightway. The speed of light through zero is 18,000 miles per second or 3 lakh kilometers per second.
What is illumination?
Illumination is the amount of luminous flux per unit area of a plane or surface or the energy of light incoming a surface of a specific unit area per unit time is known as illumination.
Let, E= Illumination, A= Area, θ= Flux
Illumination E= θ/A
Unit of Illumination
MKS= lumen/squire meter
FPS = lumen/squire feet
Law of Proportional: The value of illumination on any surface is proportional to the luminous density of the illuminating source (when the distance between the surface and the cosine between them remains constant)
Law of Inverse Squares: The value of illumination on any surface is inversely proportional to the distance of the illuminating source (when the density and the cosine between them remains constant)
Lambert’s Cosine Law:
The cosine of the angle between the normal at that point and the direction of luminous flux determines the value of illumination on any surface. Mathematically, E ∞ Cosθ
Combination of three laws:
E ∞ ICOS θ/r2.
Lux: The SI unit of illumination value; is equal to one lumen per square meter
What is the speed/ velocity of light?
Light passes in the air at a speed of 299 792 458 m / s. Light travels 1.0003 times slower in the air than it does in a vacuum. Light travels at 3x108 meters per second in vacuum.
What is a light-year?
The distance that light travels in a year in space is called a light-year. It is a unit of measurement of length, with which astronomical distances are measured. A light-year is a distance that light travels in 365.25 days. The unit of measurement of light-years is parsec. 3.26 light-years are equivalent to one Parsec.
What is light energy?
Light energy is electromagnetic radiation. Light energy is emitted as a series of tiny waves or packets.
What is the speed of light in mph?
670 616 629 Mph (Miles per hour)
What does srs mean?
Supplemental Restraint System indicates that the car's airbag system is malfunctioning.
What is white light?
The sun's white light is made up of seven different shades. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet are the seven colors.
What does led mean?
LED means light-emitting diode. It is a special type of device through which light emits when electricity flows. It works in forwarding BIOS.
What is visible light?
Light wavelengths that are visible to the naked eye are known as visible light.
How fast does light travel in a vacuum?
Light travels at 3x108 meters per second in vacuum.
What is light made of?
Light is made up of photons, which are electromagnetic field packets that bear a certain amount of energy.
In the air, how fast does light travel?
Light passes in the air at a speed of 299 792 458 m / s. The Refractive index of air is 1.0003 that’s why light passes in the air slightly slower than vacuum.
What does incandescent mean?
The energy of light emits when electricity flows through the filament of a specific substance in a glass shell filled with inert gas this type of light is called incandescent. A rare metal called tungsten is used as a filament. Also, the production and energy cost of this lamp was relatively much less.
What is a sconce?
A wall sconce is a kind of wall-mounted light fixture. Sconces are a very old type of light fixture. Modern fixtures are more commonly referred to as wall lights.
What is ultraviolet?
Ultraviolet rays are a type of electromagnetic radiation whose wavelength is shorter than visible light and larger than that of X-rays. The wavelength of this ray is 10 nanometers to 400 nanometers and the energy is 3 electron-volts to 124 electron-volts.
What is glare?
Excessive and unregulated light causes glare, which is a visual phenomenon.
What is polarized light?
A polarizer is a system that makes an unpolarized or mixed-polarized beam of electromagnetic waves into a beam with a single polarization state.
The polarizer can be rotated 360 o. The polarizer is placed at the bottom of the sample in the microscope
What is the speed of light in water?
225,000 kilometers per second, the refractive index of 1.3
What does refract mean?
Light refracts as it travels from one medium to another. In simple words, the bending of the light wave is called refraction.
