Light travels at about 186,000 miles per second and so divide this into 1,000,000,000,000 which is about 5,376,344 seconds

### How long does it take light travel one trillion miles?

Approximately two months.

### How big is a lightyear?

Light can travel about 6 trillion miles in a year, so that distance is called a light-year.

### How long would take a light to travel 11 trillion miles?

One light year is about 6 trillion miles. So if we calculate the amount of light years, we can calculate the amount of years. In order to figure out the number of light years, we divide 11 by 6, adding trillion to our answer (6 because 1 light year is 6 trillion miles). 11 divided by 6 is about 1.83 (or 1.83 trillion). So, in conclusion, it would take light 1.83 years to travel 11 trillion miles. Another way to solve this is simply calculating the amount of time it would take light to travel 1 trillion miles and multiply that by 11. So you divide 365 (the amount of days in a year) by 6 you get 60. It would take light 60 days for light to travel 1 trillion miles. 60 times 11 is 660, so it would take 660 days (or 1.8 years) for light to travel 11 trillion miles.

### How long would it take for light to travel in nine years?

One light year is around 10 trillion km or 6 trillion miles. Nine lightyears would be 90 trillion km or 54 trillion miles. You would generally just say nine lightyears though.

### How long does it take to travel 4.6 trillion miles?

It depends on your speed. Even at the speed of light this trip would take at least 9.4 months.

### How long in years would take to travel 57 trillion km in light years?

Light years is not a time, it is a distance. It takes light about 6.025 years to travel 57 trillion km. In other words, 57 trillion km = 6.025 light years.

### How long in years to travel 1 ght year?

if you're asking "how long in years to travel 1 light year" you would have to know how fast you are traveling. a light year is a measure of distance that's equal to approximately six trillion miles...

### How long would it take to travel 120 trillion miles?

It all depends on your rate of speed. Say you were traveling at a speed of OVER 9000 MPH, it would take you less time to travel 120 trillion miles than 1337 MPH. 120 trillion miles is roughly 20 light years, ie it takes 20 years for light to travel that far. Voyager 1, now leaving the solar system at a speed of about 39,000 miles per hour, would need more than 300,000 years to travel that far.

### How long is 14 lightyears?

A 'light-year' is a distance calculated by how far light can travel in one standard year. A 'light-minute' is how far light can travel in one minute. Earth is about 8 light-minutes (93,000,000 miles) from the Sun. 14 light-years in space is going to be about 84 trillion miles, a huuuuge distance!

### How long take to travel 5.9 trillion miles at 5 miles per second?

Time = Distance/Speed = 1.18 trillion seconds = 37,400 years, approx.

### How long would it take to go 120 trillion miles in space?

about 300,000 years since 120 trillion miles=approximately 20 light years

### How long would it take to travel only one light year?

What, walking, swimming? a long time. By definition one light year is how far LIGT travels in one year. That's 5.8 trillion miles, or 5,800,000,000,000!
