We are required to state the effect of one of the laws governing brightness.

Apparent brightness:

$\overline{){\mathbf{B}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{L}}{\mathbf{4}\mathbf{\pi }{\mathbf{d}}^{\mathbf{2}}}}$ where B is apparent brightness, L is intrinsic luminosity, and d is the distance from the source.
