### Millicandela to lumens calculation

The formula used to calculate the uniform, isotropic light source, the luminous flux Φ_{v }in lumens (lm) is apparently equal to the luminous intensity *I*_{v} measured in millicandela (mcd), multiplied by the solid angle *Ω* in steradians (sr) which is totally divided by 1000.

**Φ _{v(lm)} = I_{v(mcd)} × Ω_{(sr)} / 1000**

The value of solid angle *Ω* in steradians (sr) is apparently equal to twice the value of pi times 1 minus cosine of half the apex angle *θ* measured in degrees (°):

**Ω _{(sr)} = 2π(1 – cos(θ/2))**

The value of luminous flux Φ_{v }measured in lumens (lm) is apparently equal to the luminous intensity *I*_{v} measured in millicandela (mcd), multiplied by twice and half the apex angle *θ* measured in degrees (°) and finally divided by 1000.

**Φ _{v(lm)} = I_{v(mcd)} × ( 2π(1 – cos(θ/2)) ) / 1000**

So, the value can be found by,

**lumens = millicandela × ( 2π(1 – cos(degrees/2)) ) / 1000**

Or, the formula uses is,

**lm = mcd × ( 2π(1 – cos(°/2)) ) / 1000**
