## How far does light travel per minute?

The speed of light is 186,282 miles per second. So light would travel 60 times that much in a minute. 186,282 x 60 = 11,176,920 miles per minute. If you could travel at the speed of light, you could go around the Earth 7.5 times in one second.

## How far can light travel in one minute in meters?

1 Light minute is 1.798 754 748 x 1010 meters (SI unit). Distance light travels in a vacuum in one minute.

## How far does light travel in 2 seconds?

The speed of light is 299 792 458 meter per 1.00000 seconds. So 2 seconds would, in a vacuum, equate to 599 584 916 meters. Everyone says that after reaching the speed of light we travel to the future, but does light travel to the future itself?

## How far can light travel in 8 minutes?

Light moves at 300,000 kilometers/second. Divide these and you get 500 seconds, or 8 minutes and 20 seconds. This is an average number.

## Is it possible to travel faster than light?

As an object approaches the speed of light, its mass rises precipitously. If an object tries to travel 186,000 miles per second, its mass becomes infinite, and so does the energy required to move it. For this reason, no normal object can travel as fast or faster than the speed of light.

## Whats the fastest thing in the universe?

Within the universe, light is the fastest things, light as no mass, things with no mass could reach light speed. A shadow is the next thing, which can travel faster than light.

## At what speed does light travel?

299,792 kilometers per second

## Which is faster light or sound?

Sound travels at about 340meters per second. So, in meters, light travels about 1000 times faster than sound. Light travels about 1km/s faster than sound.
