Enter the intensity of the light (lux) into the Grow Light Distance Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Grow Light Distance.

## Grow Light Distance Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Grow Light Distance.

Dgl = L / 12.088

• Where Dgl is the Grow Light Distance (inches)
• L is the intensity of the light (lux)

## How to Calculate Grow Light Distance?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Grow Light Distance.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the intensity of the light (lux).
• The intensity of the light (lux) is given as: 955.
2. Finally, calculate the Grow Light Distance using the equation above:

Dgl = L / 12.088

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

Dgl = 955 / 12.088 = 79 (inches)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

intensity of the light (lux) = 1500

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.

Dgl = L / 12.088 = ?
