**Light Year Definition:** “One light year is the distance that light travels in one year in a vacuum. The speed of light in a vacuum is approximately 299,792,458 meters per second.”

To convert 1 Light Year to Km (Kilometer), we can use the following steps: Formula we used To Convert.

**1 Light Year = (299,792,458 Meters/Second) * (60 Seconds/Minute) * (60 Minutes/Hour) * (24 Hours/Day) * (365.25 Days/Year)**

**1 Light Year = 9,460,730,472,580,800 Meters**

**1 Kilometer (Km) = 1000 meters**

**After the calculation we get, 1 Light Year = 9,460,730,472,580,800 Meters = 9,460,730,472,580.8 Km**
