Factor Label Help!!!
Using the fact that a light year is the distance light travels in one year, calculate the volume of space in cubic miles that is equal to 1 cubic light year (the speed of light is 186000 miles/second)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0See if you can figure it out The miles has 3 in the exponent since it is cubed. The unit for the answer is cubic miles traveled in a light year. (mi^3/yr)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The miles is already cubed for you. Miles would be the unit to cubed though since they are looking for miles cubed. Ah ok. Good luck solving it. You can ask me for help if you are finished.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would be to 3 sig figs 2.03x10^23 mi^3/yr ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait I take that back you dont cube anything until you find the miles traveled in a light year.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so (186000 miles x 60seconds x 60 minutes x 24 hours x 365days)^3 Units would be in cubic miles.
