First of all, light years is a measure of what? Time, distance, mass, sweetness, what?

well distance

yes distance. Hence A is wrong. Now what is the scale of the wavelength of light? Big or small? Tiny, 1/1000000 of a meter How far is a light year? Incredibly huge: 9,460,000,000,000 kilometers

How long does it take for light to travel from the earth to the moon?
anonymous
  • anonymous
idk
anonymous
  • anonymous
but it could be earth to the moon
JamesJ
  • JamesJ
1.5 seconds.

  • anonymous
JamesJ it's C right?
JamesJ
  • JamesJ
1.5 seconds is a tiny, tiny fraction of a year. Light years don't sound like a g good measure of distance for that to me.
anonymous
  • anonymous
but think about it, the distance between the stars and the distance between the earth and moon. Clearly the distance between the earth and moon is more.

right?

What?! The nearest star to our sun is 4.2 light years away!
anonymous
  • anonymous
its saying the distance between "two stars"
anonymous
  • anonymous
read it carefully once again*
JamesJ
  • JamesJ
Yes ... and most stars are light years apart from their nearest neighbor.
JamesJ
  • JamesJ
just as the sun is 4.2 light years away from its nearest neighbor.

ok i think ur right because i have been thinking about it, but let me verify it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok it's D, my bad.
JamesJ
  • JamesJ
I am right because if stars were that close to each other, our night sky would be incredibly bright as the density of stars would be so much higher.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes indeed, sorry I did not research properly and did not have a deep knowledge of it before. Thankyou for ur correction & I have learnt something new myself lol.
JamesJ
  • JamesJ
back of the envelope, about 100,000,000 times brighter, which would be a lot brighter! ;-)

  • anonymous
ok i think she isn't here anyway, so yeh clearly the answer is D.
anonymous

D.
