Feet per minuit speed of light trivel to sun?
The question is confusing. I hope the following comments get at whatever the question is trying to uncover: The speed of light is 299,792,458 meters per second in vacuum. That's equivalent to 59,014,265,270 feet per minute. (rounded) The speed is the same no matter where the light starts out or where it ends up, as long as the trip doesn't take it through any material stuff. At that speed, light takes about 81/3 minutes to travel from the sun to Earth. ...
