Re: (TFT) One-Hex Fire - how much light?
From: Mark Tapley <email@example.com>
or, from http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/0,,sid9_gci542011,00.html
1 lux = 1.46 milliwatt / m^2
where the whole 1.46 milliwatt has to be visible light (555 nanometer
wavelength, which (I think) is yellow).
Thanks, I needed that. Couldn't find it anywhere last night.
Spontanious combustion is defined as the tempurature were a
material burns without external oxygen and provides it's own fuel.
Maybe in magic terms. In physics, it means (loosely) the temperature at
which a substance will ignite itself (even without a spark). It will still
need oxygen (or some oxidizer - could be H2O2 or something) to burn, but
because it could ignite pretty much all at once, it will burn *fast* once
As Homer Simpson said "Doh!"
celcius material spontaniously combusts
230 linseed oil
140 drying oil paints
100 green hay
65 - 121 animal feed
30 - 40 damp coal
Some of the numbers on this table are highly suspect. Damp coal will
gang-fire at 30 C = 86 F !??!? On a hot summer day, Pennsylvania could
erupt. Cotton in a double-boiler will explode??? I don't believe it.
LOL! News anchorman voice "Pennsylvania errupted again yesterday."
Sorry it wasn't labeled properly. But the numbers above are celcius.
For black-body radiation ....
Nice work. So one could say that shadowights just see in a different
frequency than normal.
