## Homework Statement

A radio transmitter is located 17.5 km away. The broadcast signals travel at the speed of light (c = 3.00 x 108 m.s-1) through the air towards a radio receiver.

Calculate the time it takes the radio signal to travel from the transmitter to the receiver.

## Homework Equations

Not sure on what equation to use in this case?

Thinking;

t = d/c ?

## The Attempt at a Solution

t = d/c

= 17500m / (3.00 x 10^8)

= 5.83 x 10^5 s

Not sure whether this is the correct equation to use for this question, if not which equation should I use. From my notes in class I don't have an equation that uses these symbols other than t = d/c
