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.
(I1/I2) = ((d2)2 / (d1)2)
Here I1 and I2 are the initial and final intensity of the physical quantity.
And, d1 and d2 are the initial and final distance from the source.
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.
We know that (I1/I2) = ((d2)2 / (d1)2)
And I1 = 8 candela
I2 = 64 candela
d1 = 4m
So, (8/64) = ((d2)2 / (4)2)
(1/8) = ((d2)2 / 16)
d2 = 1.41 m
Thus, the final distance from the source is 1.41 m.
