## How to perform key conversions involving length measurements

The formulas for conversion are represented below:

### Centimeters to Light Years Formula

ly = cm / 9,461x1017

Example: 30 Centimeters in Light Years:

ly = cm / 9,461x1017

ly = 30 / 9,461x1017

ly = 3,171x10-17

### Light Years to Centimeters Formula

cm = ly * 9,461x1017

Example: 1.5 Light Years in Centimeters:

cm = ly * 9,461x1017

cm = 1,5 * 9,461x1017

cm = 1,419x1018

## Frequently asked questions involving length and distance

### 100 Centimeters equals how many Light Years

Considering that 1 Centimeter is equivalent to 1.057x10-18 Light Years, you can use a rule of three to obtain that 100 Centimeters equal 1.057x10-16< /sup>Light Years.

1 cm - 1,057x10-18 ly

100 cm - x

Apply the rule of three and get:

x cm = 100 x 1,057x10-18 lycm

x = 1,057x10-16 ly

### 100 Light Years equal how many Centimeters?

If every 1 Light Years we have 9.461x1017 Centimeters, just multiply the amount of Light Years (100) by 9.461x1017, so you will get that 100 ly equals 100,000 cm. Observe the calculation below:

cm = ly * 9,461x1017

cm = 100 * 9,461x1017

cm = 9,461x1019
