While a lumen(lm) is the SI derived unit measuring how much light you are getting from a bulb.

A candela(cd) is the SI unit of luminous intensity.

**Formula to convert cd to lm.**

To convert cd to lm, we need to know how they are related.

We are told that 1 candela emits 12.6 lumens.

Therefore, to convert cd to lm, we multiply the cd value by 12.6.

**Example:**

Convert 48 candela of light intensity of a spotlight.

**= 48 x 12.6**

**= 604.8 Lumens.**
