1.3.1 Introduction

Level 1 laboratory activity refers to condition where the problem and ways & means are guided and given to the students. However the answers to the assignment are left to the students to solve using the group creativity and innovativeness. The activity is hope to slowly introduced and inculcate independent learning amongst students and prepare them for a much harder task of open-ended laboratory activities. In these laboratory activities, students will be expose to learn the basic concepts and principles of various types of lighting lux where can assist them to determine the level of illumination for certain room.

1.3.2 Theory

The first purpose of lighting is to illuminate. Both natural daylight and artificial lighting at night should be designed to provide a comfortable level of illumination for viewing without causing eyestrain or fatigue. Lighting design involves not only determine the amount of light required within a space. It also concerned with the location pattern of light sources (windows and light fixtures), the distribution and diffusion of light, and the reflectance of this light off the room’s surfaces and object within it. The illumination can be measured by using Lux Meter as shown in Figure 1.0. Difference lightning sources give different intensity of illumination.

4 Apparatus Digital Lux Meter. Press the zero buttons. Select the 2000 Lux range using RANGE switch. 1. 9. ( the light being measured must encompass the entire surface of light sensor dome).3. Press the button to turn the meter on. 2.3 Procedure To execute the given exercise the group should follow the following procedure: 1. . 7. 3. Hold the light sensor in the area where light is to be collected. 20000 Lux or 50000 Lux). The reading should be zero. 6. Take not less than 3 reading of illumination of each location be measures and take average. It may be necessary to adjust the RANGE if the reading on the display shows dashes along the top of the reading area (select range 2000 Lux. 4. 5.3. Place the sensor cover over the light sensor.1. Compare your result with the illumination standard. 8. Remove the sensor cover from the light sensor and proceed with the measurement. effectively blocking all lights to the sensor.
