## How to Find an Inverse Square Law Calculator?

As the intensity of the radiation is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the source.

**(I _{1}/I_{2}) = ((d_{2})^{2} / (d_{1})^{2})**

Here I_{1} and I_{2 }are the initial and final intensity of the physical quantity.

And, d_{1} and d_{2} are the initial and final distance from the source.

**Solved Examples on Inverse Square Law Calculator**

**Example 1:**

What will be the final distance between the source and physical quantity if the initial and final intensity are 8 and 64 candela respectively and the initial distance from the source is 4 m.

**Solution:**

We know that (I_{1}/I_{2}) = ((d_{2})^{2} / (d_{1})^{2})

And I_{1} = 8 candela

I_{2 }= 64 candela

d_{1} = 4m

So, (8/64) = ((d_{2})^{2} / (4)^{2})

(1/8) = ((d_{2})^{2} / 16)

d_{2} = 1.41 m

Thus, the final distance from the source is 1.41 m.

**Example 2:**

What will be the final distance between the source and physical quantity if the initial and final intensity are 12 and 25 candela respectively and the initial distance from the source is 11 m.

**Solution:**

We know that (I_{1}/I_{2}) = ((d_{2})^{2} / (d_{1})^{2})

And I_{1} = 12 candela

I_{2 }= 25 candela

d_{1} = 11 m

So, (12/25) = ((d_{2})^{2} / (11)^{2})

(12/25) = ((d_{2})^{2} / 121)

d_{2} = 7.62 m

Thus, the final distance from the source is 1.41 m.
