The correct exposure time for a photographic print is 20sec at a distance of 2feet from a 40candela lamp. The exposure time for the same print at a distance of 4 feet from a 20candela lamp is.

Hi Vishesh,

The exposure time for a particular print from a 40 Cd lamp is 20 sec at 2 feet.

Now, the lamp is changed and the distance is also changed.

The intensity of new lamp is reduced to half and the distance is doubled.

We know that intensity is inversely proportional to square of the distance.

Hence, if intensity is halved and distance is doubled, then we have

Hence, the exposure to get the same print has to be 8 times, i.e. 20 × 8 = 160 sec = 2 min 40 secs.
