Light years to centimeters converter returns centimeters [cm] value by giving the number of light years [ly]. The calculator computes 1 ly into 946073047 bn cm. You can see also centimeters into light years calculator.

## 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.

## Centimeter

**Centimeter** (abbreviated cm) – is defined as a hundredth of a meter or 10 millimeters. A unit often used in everyday measurements. Used in many popular hand-held measuring tools. On the other hand, it is poorly used in scientific and engineering calculations.

## Convert units from light years to centimeters

Light years to centimeters converter is a tool for comparing different metric units. It is worth presenting the operation of the converter on river lengths, mountain heights or cave depths. Using meters into light years calculator you can find out what the value is in meters to miles and then calculate the light years into centimeters. Also check meters into light years calculator or kilometers into light years calculator.
