Here is a URL that has a general description of The Law.

Here's a 'webtool' for ARRI lights in determining what amount of light is at what distance, for ARRI lights.

 

http://calc.arri.de/calculator

 

Since ARRI lights are popular cinematography lights, you can use the calculator to figure things out from imagined scene scenarios.

 

The problem with 'cheap' lights, is that often the manufacturer or seller has no 'data' like the ARRI lights to allow you to calculate what the light intensity is in a given setup.
