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?
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)`
= 150 candela
