# How far does light travel in 1 nano second?

## How far does light travel in 1 nano second?

Light travels about 300,000 kilometers (or 186,000 miles) in one second. That means it goes about 30 centimeters — about one foot — in one nanosecond.

## How long is a nano second?

one billionth
A nanosecond (ns or nsec) is one billionth (10-9) of a second and is a common measurement of read or write access time to random access memory (RAM). Admiral Grace Hopper famously handed out foot-long lengths of wire to students to illustrate how far an electrical signal can travel in a nanosecond.

How far does light travel per second?

The speed of light traveling through a vacuum is exactly 299,792,458 meters (983,571,056 feet) per second. That’s about 186,282 miles per second — a universal constant known in equations as “c,” or light speed.

How far can light travel in one nanosecond 1 1000000000 th of a second )?

The speed of light passes almost 0.98 feet in one nanosecond.

### How long does it take light to travel 1 ft in nanoseconds?

speed of light is one foot per nanosecond. one second equals 109 nanoseconds. One meter is defined as 39.37 inches.

### What is after a Yoctosecond?

Mecosecond is one decillionth of a second. Vecosecond is one nonillionth of a second. Xonosecond is one octillionth of a second. Yoctosecond, (yocto + second), is one quadrillionth (in the long scale) or one septillionth (in the short scale) of a second.

What do you mean by nano seconds?

Definition of nanosecond 1 : one billionth of a second.

What is smaller than a zeptosecond?

yoctosecond
The only unit of time shorter than a zeptosecond is a yoctosecond, and Planck time. A yoctosecond (ys) is a septillionth of a second.
