What are the laws of illumination ?

i) Illumination is directly proportional to the luminous intensity of the source.
ii) Inverse square law – The illumination of a surface receiving its flux from a point source is inversely proportional to the square of the distance between the surface and the source.
iii) Lambert’s cosine law – The illumination of a surface at any point is proportional to the cosine of the angle between the normal at the point and the direction of the luminous flux.

W hat are the characteristics of good illumination ?
  1. The light should not strike directly the eyes.
  2. The type and size of the lamp should be correct.
