Classical Mechanics Level 4

Assume that the nearest galaxy to us is separated from us by \(10^{20}\) m. If we wait long enough, in \(t\) years we won't be able to see any other galaxy from ours. If this time is written as \(a \times 10^{n}\), where \(1 < a < 10\), what is the value of \(n\)?

Details and Assumptions:

  • Take the Hubble constant \(H = 10^{-18}\) \(s^{-1}\)
  • Assume the speed of light \(c = 3 \times 10^{8}\text{ m/s}\).
