Earth and Sun

Earth is 150 million km away from the Sun. 300,000 km of sunlight travels in 1 second. How long will the light come from the Sun to the Earth?

Correct answer:

t =  8.3333 min

Step-by-step explanation:

s=150 1000000=150000000 km v=300000 km/s t1=s/v=150000000/300000=500 s t=t1/60=500/60=8.3333 min
