The distance between the earth and the moon is about 384,000 km. calculate the time it takes for light to travel from the moon to earth? Physics 1D Motion Displacement and Velocity 1 Answer Nam D. · Stefan V. Jan 2, 2018 Answer: But the answer is #~~1.28s# Explanation: The speed of light (#c#) is constant everywhere, it is #299","792","458 m"/"s=299","792.458km"/"s# Therefore, it takes #(384","000)/(299","792.458)~~1.28s# for the light to travel from the moon to earth.
