# If parsec is the distance that light travels in 3.26 years. How many kilometers does light travel in 1.0 parsec?

Dec 23, 2015

1 Parsec = 3.06 x ${10}^{13}$ km

#### Explanation:

1 Parsec = 3.26 Light-years

3.26 Light-Years is the the distance which light covers in 3.26 Years

1 Light-year = 9.4 x ${10}^{12}$ km

3.26 Light-Year = 3.26 * 9.4 x ${10}^{12}$

3.26 Light-Year = 3.06 x 10^13# km

or

1 Parsec = 3.06 x ${10}^{13}$ km
