## Lux to watts calculation formula

#### Lux to watts calculation with area in square feet

The power P in watts (W) is equal to the 0.09290304 times the illuminance Ev in lux (lx) times the surface area A in square feet (ft2), divided by the luminous efficacy η in lumens per watt (lm/W):

P(W) = 0.09290304 × Ev(lx) × A(ft2) / η(lm/W)

#### Lux to watts calculation with area in square meters

The power P in watts (W) is equal to the illuminance Ev in lux (lx) times the surface area A in square meters (m2), divided by the luminous efficacy η in lumens per watt (lm/W):

P(W) = Ev(lx) × A(m2) / η(lm/W)
