# A Source Emits 31.4 W of Radiant Flux Distributed Uniformly in All Directions. the Luminous Efficiency is 60 Lumen Watt−1. What is the Luminous Intensity of the Source? - Physics

Sum

A source emits 31.4 W of radiant flux distributed uniformly in all directions. The luminous efficiency is 60 lumen watt−1. What is the luminous intensity of the source?

#### Solution

Given that,

Radiant flux = 31.4 W

Since the radiant flux is distributed uniformly in all directions, the solid angle will be 4π Luminous efficiency = 60 lumen/W

So, luminous flux = luminous efficiency × radiant flux

= 60 × 31.4 lumen

Luminous intensity = "Luminous flux"/"Solid angle"="Luminous flux"/(4pi)

=(60xx(31.4))/(4pi)

= 150 candela
