Because it only takes 8 minutes for sunlight to reach Earth, but it takes 4 hours to reach Neptune.

Absolute location is typically defined by 3 (sometimes 4 variables): Latitude (distance from equator measured in degrees, minutes and seconds), longitude (distance from the prime meridian also given in degrees, minutes and seconds), elevation (distance above/below sea level) and sometimes time.

No.

Latitude is the angular distance north or south from the equator of a point on the earth's surface, measured on the meridian of the point. And longitude is an angular distance on the earth's surface, measured east or west from the prime meridian at Greenwich, England, to the meridian passing through a position, expressed in degrees (or hours), minutes, and seconds.Sources:http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/longitudehttp://dictionary.reference.com/browse/latitude

cm/min -- centimeters per minute, speed is always determined by distance over time. :)

Miles in the US. Kilometers in most other places. Or, distance is often measured in time: How many hours or minutes does it take to get there.

determine the units of a caterpillar's speed if you measure the distance the caterpillar travels in centimeters and the time it takes to travels this distance in minute

it would be 20 minutes. actually it would still be 10 minutes. the rate of the caterpillars is 1 ft/min. doubling the number of caterpillars wouldn't half their rate of movement.

There is nothing in our solar system far enough away from anything else in our solar system to be measured in light years. Light from the sun takes 340 minutes to reach Pluto, ie. 340 light minutes. Apart from the sun, the nearest star to us, Proxima Centauri, is 4.3 light years away.

The distance to Jupiter is better measured in light minutes. Depending on the relative positions in orbit the distance is anywhere between 30 and 70 light minutes. 0.000057 to 0.00013 light years

The sun is too close to us to be measured in light years; it is 8 light-minutes away.

It's measured in Watts.
