## Lambert's Cosine Law Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Illuminance at Angle of Incidence = Illumination Intensity*cos(Incident Angle)
Eθ = Ev*cos(θi)
This formula uses 1 Functions, 3 Variables
Functions Used
cos - Trigonometric cosine function, cos(Angle)
Variables Used
Illuminance at Angle of Incidence - Illuminance at angle of incidence is also known as the illumination angle of a surface with a light source, such as the Earth's surface and the Sun.
Illumination Intensity - (Measured in Lux) - Illumination Intensity is defined as the number of lumens, falling on the surface, per unit area.
Incident Angle - (Measured in Radian) - The incident angle refers to the angle between the impact direction and the solid surface. For a vertical impact, this angle is 90 degrees.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Illumination Intensity: 0.8 Lux --> 0.8 Lux No Conversion Required
Incident Angle: 34 Degree --> 0.59341194567796 Radian (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Eθ = Ev*cos(θi) --> 0.8*cos(0.59341194567796)
Evaluating ... ...
Eθ = 0.663230058044084
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.663230058044084 --> No Conversion Required
0.663230058044084 <-- Illuminance at Angle of Incidence

## < 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

## Lambert's Cosine Law Formula

Illuminance at Angle of Incidence = Illumination Intensity*cos(Incident Angle)
Eθ = Ev*cos(θi)

## What is the importance of Lambert's cosine law?

The importance of Lambert's cosine law is that when a surface is viewed from any angle then it appears to be uniformly radian
