AbstractSmoke-obscuration of monochromatic (0.632 mum) light from helium-neon lasers and of broad-band continuum light from a hot tungsten filament is reported. The effect of forward- scattered light is evaluated for the monochromatic source, and the degree to which the Bouguer law is obeyed for a non- monochromatic source is discussed. Practical experience with both small-scale and room-scale fire experiments is described.
