Conversion Formula

By using the online converter calculator on this page, you can calculate how many light-years are in 'X' kilometers (X is the number of kilometers you want to convert to light-years). In order to convert a value from kilometers to light-years (from km to ly) simply type the number of kilometers to be converted to light-years and then click on the 'convert' button. The formula used for converting a specific value from kilometers to light-years is:

X kilometers * cf = Y light-years

where
X = the specific value to be converted (in kilometers)
cf = the conversion factor from kilometers to light-years
Y = the result (in light-years)

Example
Let's suppose that you have a value of length of 353 kilometers and want to express it in light-years.
353 km = (353 × 1.0570008340246E-13) ly
353 km = 3.7312129441069E-11 ly

Conversion factor

1 kilometer is equal to 1.0570008340246E-13 light-year
(1 km = 1.0570008340246E-13 ly )
