Candela Per Square Meter (cd/m2) is a unit in the category of Luminous luminance. It is also known as candela/square meter, candela/square metre, candela per square metre, candelas per square meter, candelas per square metre. This unit is commonly used in the SI unit system. Candela Per Square Meter (cd/m2) has a dimension of L-2J where L is length, and J is luminous intensity. This unit is the standard SI unit in this category.
Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q
(Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).
Other units in the category of Luminous luminance include Apostilb (asb), Candle Per Square Centimeter (candle/cm2), Candle Per Square Foot (candle/ft2), Candle Per Square Inch (candle/in2), Candle Per Square Meter (candle/m2), Foot-Lambert (ft-L), Lambert (L), Nit (nit), and Stilb (sb).
