Resumen Present methods of designing lighting systems for mines do not take adequate account of light attenuation by airborne dust. The Bouguer-Lambert law of light attenuation by a turbid medium can be developed to yield an equation relating the size, density and concentration of dust particles in air to the light level at a given distance from a source. The equation contains an empirical coefficient, B, which was evaluated by measurements in a coal mine. The experimental value agreed with a theoretical value arrived at by making a number of assumptions about the properties of the dust. Calculations with this value of B showed that the presence of 0.1g/m3 of dust with given properties would reduce the light level 1.5m from a 150-candle lamp from 6 to 4.4lx.
