The formulas for conversion are represented below:

ly = m / 9,461x10^{15}

Example: 1000 Meters in Light Years:

ly = m / 9,461x10^{15}

ly = 1000 / 9,461x10^{15}

ly = 1.057x10^{-13}

m = ly * 9,461x10^{15}

Example: 5 Light Years in Meters:

m = ly * 9,461x10^{15}

m = 5 * 9.461x10^{15}

m = 4.73x10^{16}

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} ly~~m~~

x = 5.285x10^{-15} ly

If every 1 Light Years we have 9.461x10^{15} Meters, just multiply the amount of Light Years (100) by 9.461x10^{15}, so you will get that **100 ly equals 9,461x10 ^{17} m**. Observe the calculation below:

m = ly * 9,461x10^{15}

m = 100 * 9,461x10^{15}

m = 9.461x10^{17}
