I have just bought a 1.7 Million candel power rechargeable torch.
What exactly does candel power mean in real money?
Can it be compaired with say a car headlight, the sun or what?
Is there a conversion to watts (like 100W house lamp)?
Shine it in your eyes, then you can quickly find out how bright 1.7 million candle power is. Or if you don't feel like burning your eyes you can just shine it in a field.
I was just wonderingif ther is something we could compare it to, such as car headlights or something?
Candle power is a unit to measure the light intensity of the Light sourse.
"Candle power" is now replaced by the candela
**candlepower is equal to about 0.981 candela. so is ~ 1 candela
Average candle power = totel Luminus Flux / [4x3.14]
electric glow-lamps of low intensity nominally of 8 candle-power or less
grouping a bunch of candles together wouldn't create an intense light would it? If you put 1,000 candles together, you would have the same amount of light in a wider area. That's what I think anyway, which is why candle power is hard for me to picture.
