Enter the total candelas and the total area (m^2) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Candela Per Square Meter. 

Candela Per Square Meter Formula

CPSM = C / A


  • CPSM is the Candela Per Square Meter (candela/m^2)
  • C is the total candelas
  • A is the total area (m^2)

To calculate Candela Per Square Meter, divide the total candelas by the area in square meters.

How to Calculate Candela Per Square Meter?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Candela Per Square Meter.

  1. First, determine the total candelas. 
  2. Next, determine the total area (m^2). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = CPSM = C / A.
  4. Finally, calculate the Candela Per Square Meter.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total candelas = 91203

total area (m^2) = 1123
