The Radiant Exposure calculator computes the radiant exposure based on the irradiance of the surface and the time of exposure.

INSTRUCTIONS: Enter the following:

  • (Ev)  This  is the irradiance of the surface area in watts per square meter.
  • (t) This is the  duration of the exposure

Radiant Exposure (He):  The calculator returns the exposure in Newtons per Meter which is equivalent to Joules per seconds • meter square (J / s•m²).

The Radiant Exposure in photography is the amount of light per unit area reaching a photographic film or electronic image sensor, as determined by shutter speed, lens aperture and scene luminance. The formula for radaint exposure is:
  He = Ev • t

  • He = radiant exposure
  • Ee = irradiance of the surface
  • t = exposure duration
