Guys,
GEEEEEEZ, I'm here at work and don't have the correct reference. What is the formula for converting foot-candles to lumens (lux)?

It's just not one I use very often so certainly is NOT in my head (I've shook it to see if it would rattle loose, it didn't)

I'd appreciate it if someone out there has a reference book.

1 lumen/ft^2 = 1 footcandle

A great source for all those conversions nobody can remember is:

The above is a superb example of the power of ECN and other uses of "networking".

I've been told that "networking" can be thought of as the opposite of "bureaucracy".

Just gotta love it!



(Thanks once again, Bill...)
