  1. Illumination, Unit of

    An absolute standard of light received by a surface. Preece proposed as such the light received from a standard candle (see Candle, Standard) at a distance of 12.7 inches. The object of selecting this distance was to make it equal to the Carcel Standard (see Carcel), which is the light given by a Carcel lamp at a distance of one meter. From one-tenth to one-fiftieth this degree of illumination was found in gas-lighted streets by Preece, depending on the proximity of the gas lamps.
