## Main Question or Discussion Point

Is it true that the distance traveled by light during a particular time period is expressed by d=tc^2 where d is the distance travelled in metres and t is the elapsed time in seconds?

What you wrote is the equivalent of distance = time x speed^2. That doesn't make sense.

Sorry the time is in Planck time not seconds. My mistake.

Well it does work. The units all balance.

By all means, if the units do balance, then I am here to learn. Show me.

Sorry I messed up.

It should be dc^3 = tc^2.

That's where I needed the cubed value.

It should be dc^3 = tc^2.

Distance x (distance^3)/(time^3) is not equal to (time)x(distance^2)/(time^2), right?

Sorry scrub that I have mixed up two sets of equations. It is 12.53 AM here.
