## ThatHippieKid 2 years ago Light from the sun reaches Earth in 8.3 minutes. In how many minutes does light from the sun reach mars? 12.62 13.34 15.85 16.60

You need to know the distance from Earth to mars first and then use Distance over time to get the speed

2. ThatHippieKid

I have no idea how to do that.

Theres like a graph with planets on it. I'd rather not think

Alright, so you know the difference between Mars and Earth is .52 AU right?

12. ThatHippieKid

No?

13. ThatHippieKid

I guess I do now lol

14. KaileeBrowning

And you know that it took 8.3 minutes to go from sun to earth. So now you have to add in the extra .52 because it's more distance so it will take more time

15. ThatHippieKid

Ok

16. KaileeBrowning

So now you divide 8.3 by .52 and then you get your answer

17. ThatHippieKid

Okaayy

18. KaileeBrowning

So what did you get?

19. ThatHippieKid

15. (hella numbers)

20. KaileeBrowning

21. ThatHippieKid

22. KaileeBrowning
