Kilometers to light years converter

Kilometers to light years converter returns exact value for kilometers [km] into light years [ly]. The calculator turn back 0.00000000000000000268 ly in 1 km or in the shortened form 1.057000834E-13 ly in 1 km. 


Kilometer (km in short) – is an easy-to-use multiple of a meter – the basic SI unit. Converting a kilometer into meters we get the value of 1000 m. A kilometer is a very frequently used measure of length, especially in relation to road signs. Even in the USA, where a mile has been used for a long time, the signage gradually changes to kilometers.

Light year

Light year (abbreviated ly) – this unit is used primarily in astronomy. Its length is simply equivalent to the distance light travelled in a vacuum in 1 year. To better visualize the value of this measure, an approximate value of 9.5 trillion kilometers can be given.
