1. In comparing an incandescent lamp and a LED lamp, which of the two has a higher CRI?
2. How many daily hours would the lamps be turned on in estimating the rated average life of a lamp?
3. What is Diffuse Reflection?
One rear of light reflected into several other light
4. What is specular transmission?
One rear of light transmitted into another light
5. If light enters into a piece of glass from the outside, would the direction of light be bent toward or
away from normal to the glass surface?
6. If two lamps have 1000K and 3000K respectively, which of the two would have a cooler tone?

Discomfort (background and object – Too much contract). Minimum values D. What is EPACT92 stand for? Energy policy act 1992Ye 2. Electricity 6. D^2 refers to what? Distance from the light to a point. (not hypotenuse) 5. unit (degree K) 3. What are the example of primary energy? Crude oil. In the Point to Point method. number of fixtures 2.Daylighting reduces electric lighting loads . Refined oil. Suggested values 6. True or false – All incandescent lamps do not require a ballast to function 2. In order to use the lumen method what is the necessary and sufficient condition that must be met? Uniformity of light distribution 3. wind. Disability (Unable to see) QUIZ #5 1. What does LED stand for? Light Emitting Diodes 2. Abney’s law state that light levels are Additive 4.QUIZ #3 1. biomass. compared to the total energy input in a coal power plant? 27% 3. What is a PAR lamp? Parabolic Aluminized Reflector 5. Electric energy consumers in residential buildings pay more for peak demand than for the electric energy consumed? (True/False) 5. Give an example of secondary energy? Petroleum. nuclear 3. Explain the following lamp ID: 60G12 – INCANDESCENT -> 60: wattage. waste. Fill in the blank: Electric energy represent (66%) of all energy consumed in office buildings in the US. G: Globe (shape). What are the two things that can be solved for when using the Lumen Method? – illuminance level. 12: Size (size in 1/8”) 6. What group of lamps the Metal Halide lamp belongs to? HID QUIZ #4 1. What is the proportion of energy that reaches the consumer. The illuminance values listed on the IESNA chart for a particular space’s function/use are: A. What does CCT stand for? Correlated color chart. The required by law B. 4. Maximum values C. What other terms are used for LED lighting – solid state lighting 4. What is the other name of fluorescent lamps? Low intensity discharge lamps 5. Reflected (veiling reflection). Why is lighting one of the most dominant cause of energy consumption in office buildings? Double: use of light to power the electricity of building and to remove the heat produced by the lighting Questions 1.

Where does light loss occur? Inside the luminaire. C. Does the azimuth of the sun matter with an overcast sky? No. What does IESNA stand for? Illuminating engineering society of north america 12. What two factors affect the CU (coefficient of utilization)? Type of fixture. Daylighting reduces cooling load due to electric lighting. 9. B. Standard sky conditions Clear sky (cloud cover<30%) CIE overcast sky (cloud cover >70%) Intermediate or partly cloud sky (30%~70%) 8. room characteristics 14. 10. 13. How do you calculate direct illuminance when there is both direct and diffuse present? Use an object to block out the direct to get only the diffuse and then subtract from global. operational maintenance. surface reflectance. What is luminous efficiency? % of light that leaves luminaire compared to amount of light produced . geometry of room. only altitude. What does global illuminance consist of? Direct illuminance and diffuse illuminance 7. What is another word for Reflected glare? Veiling glare 11. due to lumen maintenance or depreciation. Daylighting can reduces peak demand (usually when there’s most daylighting) 6.
