How would you convert parsecs to centimeters?

For example, if an object travels 9.6 parsecs, what would this distance be in centimeters?

1 parsec = 3.0644 x ${10}^{18}$ cm

Explanation:

We should not use such small measures for such large distances that's why we use light years and Parsecs where huge distances are involved usually on cosmic scale. Anyways

1 Parsec = 3.26 Light Years

1 Light-Year = 9.4 x ${10}^{15}$ m

3.26 Light-Years = 3.26 * 9.4 x ${10}^{15}$

3.26 Light-Years = 3.06 x ${10}^{16}$ m

1 m = $100$ cm

3.06 x ${10}^{16}$ m = 3.06 x ${10}^{16}$ * 100

3.06 x ${10}^{16}$ m = 3.0644 x ${10}^{18}$ cm

1 parsec = 3.0644 x ${10}^{18}$ cm
