Solutions

During an experiment, a signal from a spaceship reached the ground station in five minutes. What was the distance of the spaceship from the ground station? The signal travels at the speed of light, that is, 3 × 108 ms–1.

Distance = time × speed

Time = 5 minutes × 60 = 300 seconds

Speed = 3 × 10^{8} m/s

Distance = 300 × 3 × 10^{8}

= 9 × 10^{10} m

= 9 × 10^{7} km
