Light years to meters converter

Light years to meters converter calculates the number of light years [ly] in meters [m]. The conversion for 1 meter is about 0.0000000000000001057 light year. See also meters 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.


Meter (abbreviated m) – is the basic unit of length in systems such as: SI, MKS, or MTS. The construction of the metro should be connected with the date of March 26, 1791. The length of a meter as the path that light travels in a vacuum during 1/299792458 seconds was established only at the end of the 20th century. From 1795 year to 1983 year, the measure of the meter varied depending on how it was measured.

Some another light years to meters converter examples

The light years to meters converter is used to convert metric units. Light years and meters are often used to denote length, height, and depth etc. Often times, there is a need for more metric numbers especially with regard to kilometers. For this purpose, kilometers into light years calculator can be useful.

Converting long rivers:

  • Senegal 1641 km (Atlantic Ocean) it means height of approximate0.0000000001734538 light years or 1641000 meters.
  • Tobol 1591 km (Irtysh) you might as well say it’s about0.0000000001681688 light years as well as 1591000 meters.
  • Guaviare 1497 km (Orinoco) in other metric units it is approximate0.000000000158233 light years by changing the metric unit is these 1497000 meters.
  • Colorado (Texas) 1438 km (Gulf of Mexico) can also be described as about0.0000000001519967 light years by changing the metric unit is these 1438000 meters.
  • Liao-Xiliao-Laoha 1345 km (Bohai Sea) it is an equivalent into about 0.0000000001421666 light years or as well 1345000 meters.
