**1. Light takes 1.28 s to travel from the moon to Earth. What is the distance between them?**

**2. d= vt**

**3. d = vt**

= 3 * 10

= 3.84 * 10

= 3 * 10

^{8}(1.28)= 3.84 * 10

^{8}m**1.The sun is 1.5 * 10**

^{8}km from Earth. How long does it take for its light to reach us?**2. d= vt**

**3. d = vt**

t = d/v

= 1.5 * 10

= .5s

Did i do these 2 problems right? I'm not sure because it seems to easy.

t = d/v

= 1.5 * 10

^{8}/ 3 * 10^{8}= .5s

b]1.Ole Romer found that the maximum increased delay in the appearance of lo from one orbit to the next was 14s.

a. How far does light travel in 14s?

b. Each orbit of lo is 42.5 h. Earth traveled the distance calculated above in 42.5h. Find the speed of Earth in km/s.

c. See if your answer for part b is reasonable. Calculate Earth's speed in orbit using the orbital radius, 1.5 * 10

^{8}km, and the period, one year. [/b]

**2. a/b. d= vt**

c. ?

c. ?

**3. a) d = vt**

= 3 * 10

= .4.2 * 10

b) d= vt

v = d/t

= 4.2 * 10

= 98823529.41(3600)

= 3.56 * 10

c) I do not know if I should use Kepler's Third Law or d= vt to solve this problem.

I have a question for the equation E = P/4pid

Thank You!!

= 3 * 10

^{8}/14= .4.2 * 10

^{9}mb) d= vt

v = d/t

= 4.2 * 10

^{9}/42.5= 98823529.41(3600)

= 3.56 * 10

^{11}km/sc) I do not know if I should use Kepler's Third Law or d= vt to solve this problem.

I have a question for the equation E = P/4pid

^{2}. I know that the P represents the luminous flux, but can I put in m/s instead or does it work for lm only and what does lm and lx stand for?Thank You!!
