n(Lambert’s) Law Describes the proportionality between the absorption of radiant energy by a nonscattering material and its optical path length −LogTi/1 = K, where Ti is the internal transmittance, 1 is the path length, and K is the unit absorption coefficient. See  Beer-Bougure Law. (Giambattista A, Richardson R, Richardson RC, Richardson B (2003) College physics. McGraw Hill Science/Engineering/Math, New York).
