1. The Difference Between Lumens and Lux
1 Lux is a measure of how many lumens are present in a given area. It's essentially a measure of "photon density" or "light concentration." A "denser" cloud of photons means there are more lumens present in a space--producing more brightness and higher lux. A "lighter" cloud of photons means fewer lumens--leading to dimmer conditions and lower lux. o 2 To illustrate the difference between lumens and lux: While the sun always produces the same number of lumens, on cloudy days there are fewer lux outdoors. At night, only the lumens provided by the moon and stars reach the ground, leading to extremely low lux under a night sky.
