One light year is defined as the distance travelled by light in one earth year . One light year is equal to 6 trillion miles or 9 trillion kilometres.

Speed of light (c) is equal to 1,86,000 miles per second or 1.86 ×105 seconds per miles or 3.00 ×105 per km

and light year(d) is calculated from c×t

C is speed of light and t is number of seconds in a year .

t = 31,536,000 seconds in a year or 3.154 ×107 seconds .

d = {3.00× 105 } × { 3.154×107 }

d = 9.46 ×1012 kilometres or 9.46 trillion kilometres
