Unit light-day
Category Length
Details In the field of length, a unit light-day refers to the distance traveled by light in a vacuum over a period of one day. It is commonly used in astronomy to express large distances between celestial objects. Since the speed of light in a vacuum is approximately 299,792 kilometers per second (km/s), a light-day can be calculated by multiplying the speed of light by the number of seconds in a day.

A light-day is equal to:

299,792 km/s * 24 hours/day * 3600 seconds/hour ≈ 25,902,068,371 km

So, a unit light-day is approximately 25.9 billion kilometers, which is roughly 16.1 billion miles. This unit is useful when describing distances within our solar system or to nearby stars but is too small for measuring distances between galaxies or on the scale of the entire universe, where light years or parsecs are more commonly used.
