(24 trillion miles) x (1609.344 meters per mile)

divided by

(300 million meters per second) x (86,400 seconds per day) x (365.24 days per year) =

4.08 years (rounded)

It is probably impossible to travel faster than the speed of light. In the hypothetical case that you could travel at 5 times the speed of light, it would of course take less than a year to travel 4.35 light-years (you would travel 5 light-years in a year). I am not quite sure how the time would be perceived from the point of view of the traveller in such a case.

That's going to depend a lot on how fast you're traveling. Just like

any other trip, the faster you drive, the sooner you get there.

For 5.88 trillion miles:

30 miles per hour . . . . . 22,360,000 years

60 miles per hour . . . . . 11,180,000 years

400 miles per hour (passenger jet) . . . . . 1,677,000 years

Speed of sound . . . . . 874,200 years

Speed of light . . . . . 1 year

Convert everything to compatible units of measurement - for example, convert the distance from light-years to miles. Then, use the formula:

distance = speed x time.

Solving for time: time = distance / speed.

A Light-Year is 6 Trillion (6,000,000,000,000) miles.

A year has 24 hours x 365 days for a total of 8,760 hours.

8,760 hours x 25,000 miles per hour for a total of 219,000,000 miles traveled in one year at 25,000 miles per hour.

6,000,000,000,000 miles for a light-year divided by 219,000,000 (the number of miles traveled in one year at 25,000 miles per hour) comes to 26,397.26 years to travel one light-year's distance at 25,000 miles per hour.

1 light year = 5.87849981 × 1012 miles.

That quantity divided by 25,000 = 235,139,992.4 years.

Incorrect. This answer is based on traveling at 25,000 miles per year, not per hour.

25 trillion miles is about 4.25 light-years. As such, it will take about 4.25 years to travel 25 trillion miles at the speed of light.

Depends on your notation of trillion - long or small scale?.

Using normal U.S. notation 1012 gives 33600000 hours so around 3,833 years

Divide the distance by the speed of light. If you express the speed of light in miles/second, the answer will be in seconds.

Approximately 10.43 years at 17,500 mph

### What is the in miles distance light travels in 4 years?

In 4 years light will travel approx 23.5 trillion miles.

### How long would take a light to travel 11 trillion miles?

One light year is about 6 trillion miles. So if we calculate the amount of light years, we can calculate the amount of years. In order to figure out the number of light years, we divide 11 by 6, adding trillion to our answer (6 because 1 light year is 6 trillion miles). 11 divided by 6 is about 1.83 (or 1.83 trillion). So, in conclusion, it would take light 1.83 years to travel 11 trillion miles. Another way to solve this is simply calculating the amount of time it would take light to travel 1 trillion miles and multiply that by 11. So you divide 365 (the amount of days in a year) by 6 you get 60. It would take light 60 days for light to travel 1 trillion miles. 60 times 11 is 660, so it would take 660 days (or 1.8 years) for light to travel 11 trillion miles.

### How long take to travel 5.9 trillion miles at 5 miles per second?

Time = Distance/Speed = 1.18 trillion seconds = 37,400 years, approx.

### How long will it take to travel 6 trillion miles?

It would take about 25,000 years. If not 35,025 years.

### How many light years to travel 120 trillion miles?

0.2 Light Years. Approx 6 trillian miles in 1 light year

### How long would it take to travel 120 trillion miles?

It all depends on your rate of speed. Say you were traveling at a speed of OVER 9000 MPH, it would take you less time to travel 120 trillion miles than 1337 MPH. 120 trillion miles is roughly 20 light years, ie it takes 20 years for light to travel that far. Voyager 1, now leaving the solar system at a speed of about 39,000 miles per hour, would need more than 300,000 years to travel that far.

Light years. This is defined as the distance that light will travel in one year. It's equivalent to around 10 trillion km or 6 trillion miles.

One light year is around 10 trillion km or 6 trillion miles. Nine lightyears would be 90 trillion km or 54 trillion miles. You would generally just say nine lightyears though.
