# Light Travels: How Far Does Light Travel in 1 Week?

## Approximately how many meters does light travel in 1 week?

1 week?

A. 2.59-10¹3

B. 1.81 - 10¹4

C. 2.59-1040

D. 6.05 - 1040

E. 1.81 - 1048

## Final answer:

Light travels approximately 1.81 x 10^48 meters in 1 week.

Light travels at about 3 x 10^8 meters per second. To calculate how far light travels in 1 week, we can use the formula Distance = Speed x Time.

Given that the speed of light is 3 x 10^8 m/s and the time we are considering is 1 week, which is equivalent to 7 days or 7 x 24 x 60 x 60 seconds, we can calculate the distance as follows:

Distance = (3 x 10^8 m/s) x (7 x 24 x 60 x 60 s)

After the calculation, we find that light travels approximately 1.81 x 10^48 meters in 1 week.

Therefore, the correct answer is option E: 1.81 - 10^48.
