Light travels extremely rapidly (c = 3.00×108 ). Suppose you had to travel 40 miles to work every day. If you traveled at the speed of light for the entire trip, how long would it take you to get to work (in seconds)? [1 mile = 1.61 ]

    time=distance/velocity time=(40 miles)*(1.61 km/mile)/[(3.0 * 10^8 m/s)*(1 km/1000 m)] make sure you convert all units so you are comparing apples to apples, and keep track of your units so your final answer is in seconds
