How to perform key conversions involving length measurements

The formulas for conversion are represented below:

Meters to Light Years Formula

ly = m / 9,461x1015

Example: 1000 Meters in Light Years:

ly = m / 9,461x1015

ly = 1000 / 9,461x1015

ly = 1.057x10-13

Light Years to Meters Formula

m = ly * 9,461x1015

Example: 5 Light Years in Meters:

m = ly * 9,461x1015

m = 5 * 9.461x1015

m = 4.73x1016

Frequently asked questions involving length and distance

50 Meters in Light Years

Considering that 1 Meter is equivalent to 1.057x10-16 Light-Years, you can use a rule of three to obtain that 50 Meters equals 5.285x10-15< /sup>Light Years.

1 m - 1,057x10-16 ly

50 m - x

Apply the rule of three and get:

x m = 5.285x10-15 lym

x = 5.285x10-15 ly

100 ly equals how many Meters?

If every 1 Light Years we have 9.461x1015 Meters, just multiply the amount of Light Years (100) by 9.461x1015, so you will get that 100 ly equals 9,461x1017 m. Observe the calculation below:

m = ly * 9,461x1015

m = 100 * 9,461x1015

m = 9.461x1017
