One light year is the distance that light travels in one year. Light travels at about 300,000 kilometers per second, or 300,000,000 meters per second. There are 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour, 24 hours in a day and there are 365.24 days per year. Multiply all those numbers together to see how many meters are in a light-year.

9.461 x 10^15 meters.

There are almost 6 trillion miles in a light year. One light year is 5.87849981 × 1012 miles. There are almost 10 trillion kilometers in one light year. (But the basic metric unit of distance is the meter, not the kilometer.) One light year is 9.4605284 x 1015 meters.

A light year is the distance that light travels in one Earth year. It's not a measure of time, but of distance. Light travels 299,792,458 meters per second in a vacuum (in space). In one year, light travels 9.46 x 1012 kilometers. (Unless it bumps into something and gets absorbed.)

There are 299792458 metres.

1 light year = 1.77862 * 1018 metres.

Light years are a measure of time not distance (wrong). A light year is equal to 9.4605284 × 10^15 meters (divide that by 1000 to get how many km).

A light-year is the distance traveled by light in one year. Note that light moves at a speed of about 300,000 km/second.A light-year is defined to have EXACTLY 9,460,730,472,580,800 meters (or approximately 9.5 quadrillion meters).

9.461 x 10^15 meters.
