Abstract. We derive a functional relation between redshift and light intensity assuming an underlying Friedmann-Robertson-Walker metric without invoking the effects of dark matter and dark energy. Our relation, which is applicable to direct observational data that does not involve distance measurements, is consistent with classical observations for nearby stars and galaxies.
