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!
