Astronomical unit

An astronomical unit (abbreviated as AU) is a unit of length now defined as about \(1.5 \times 10^8\) km(about \(93\) million miles), or roughly the mean Earth–Sun distance. A light-year (symbol: LY), is a unit of length (not time), too. As defined by the International Astronomical Union (IAU), a light-year is the distance that light travels in vacuum in one Julian year. If the speed of light in vacuum is \(3 \times 10^8\) m/s, then how many AU's are there in a LY?
