The intensity of illumination at a given point is directly proportional to the intensity of the light source and inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the light source. If a desk is properly illuminated by a 74.0 w lamp 8.00 ft from the desk, what size lamp will be needed to provide the same lighting at a distance of 12.0 ft?
