Exposure is the amount of light that is allowed through your lens' iris that hits your film emulsion, or in this case video sensor.

Choose your exposure (or f-stop) then adjust your lighting according to that.

I'm not a tech, so I don't know the specifics, but it could be a Spam Bot that spams the forums.

Basically an internet virus that takes random phrases and words from various forums and puts them into a posting to make it sound semi-real.

I'll never understand the purpose of it.

Sorry, Jonathan I didn't mean to divert your attentions but I wanna know the scientific, basic knowledge behind all these things because I'm not from any film institute I've reached upto this position by working in the environment. So if you fill like I'm so sorry again.

Your questions are poorly worded, making it hard for people to want to even attempt to answer them.

We don't "operate exposure" for one thing. Are you asking how we adjust the brightness of our individual lighting units, or how we set the exposure on the camera for the lighting level?
