$\Phi ={K}_{\text{m}}{\displaystyle \underset{0}{\overset{\infty}{\int}}V(\lambda )P(\lambda )}\mathrm{d}\lambda $

where:

*P*(*λ*) is the power spectral density radiated by the source at wavelength *λ*;

*V*(*λ*) is the spectral luminous efficiency for photopic vision;

*K*_{m} is a constant
*λ*) is expressed in watts per metre, the luminous flux *Ф* is expressed in lumens, and *K*_{m} = 683 lm/W.
