## Calculation

## Decimeters

A decimeter is equal to one-tenth of a meter. In other words, 1 decimeter is equivalent to 0.1 meters. Decimeters are often used in situations where smaller units, such as centimeters or millimeters, are too small, and larger units, like meters, are too large for convenient measurement. While the use of decimeters is not as common as some other metric units, it can be useful in specific contexts, such as measuring the dimensions of smaller objects or lengths in certain scientific applications.

## Lightyears

A light-year is a unit of astronomical distance, and it represents the distance that light travels in one year through the vacuum of space. Light travels at a speed of approximately 186,282 miles per second (299,792 kilometers per second) in a vacuum. The light-year is commonly used in astronomy to measure distances on a cosmic scale because of the vast distances involved in space. For example, the distance to nearby stars, galaxies, and other celestial objects is often expressed in terms of light-years due to the impracticality of using more familiar units like kilometers or miles for such immense distances.
