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.


A yard is a unit of length in both the imperial and U.S. customary systems of measurement. It is defined as exactly 3 feet or 36 inches. Yards are commonly used in everyday measurements, especially in the United States and countries that follow the imperial system. They are frequently used for measuring distances in sports, construction, and various household applications. For example, a football field is 100 yards long, and cloth and textiles are often measured and sold in yards.
