The nearest star to our solar system is Proxima Centauri. It is at a distance of 2,68,770 AU.

41. We can clearly see that using the AU for measuring distances of stars would be unwieldy. Therefore, astronomers use a special unit, called _________

1. Light year
2. Astronaut year
3. Century year
4. Sirius year

Explanation

We can clearly see that using the AU for measuring distances of stars would be unwieldy. Therefore, astronomers use a special unit, called ‘light year’, for measuring the distance in deep space. One light year is defined as the distance travelled by light in vacuum during the period of one year.

Explanation

In a year (non-leap), there are 365 days. Each day has 24 hours; Each hour has 60 minutes; Each minute has 60 seconds. Th us, the total number of seconds in one year = 365 × 24 × 60 × 60 = 3.153 × 107 second.

If light travels a distance of 3 × 108 m in one second, then the distance travelled by light in one year = 3 × 108 × 3.153 × 107 = 9.46 × 1015 m. This distance is known as one light year.
