Converter type: length units

This online length from pc into ly converter is a handy tool not just for certified or experienced professionals.

First unit: parsec (pc) is used for measuring length in astronomy.
Second: light-year (ly) is unit of distance.

3.26 ly is converted to 1 of what?

The light-years unit number 3.26 ly converts to 1 pc, one parsec. It is the EQUAL length in astronomy value of 1 parsec but in the light-years distance unit alternative.

How to convert 2 parsecs (pc) into light-years (ly)? Is there a calculation formula?

First divide the two units variables. Then multiply the result by 2 - for example:
3.26156379673 * 2 (or divide it by / 0.5)

QUESTION:
1 pc = ? ly

ANSWER:
1 pc = 3.26 ly

With the above mentioned two-units calculating service it provides, this length converter proved to be useful also as a teaching tool:
1. in practicing parsecs and light-years ( pc vs. ly ) values exchange.
2. for conversion factors training exercises between unit pairs.
3. work with length's values and properties.

International unit symbols for these two length measurements are:

Abbreviation or prefix ( abbr. short brevis ), unit symbol, for parsec is:
pc
Abbreviation or prefix ( abbr. ) brevis - short unit symbol for light-year is:
ly

One parsec of length converted to light-year equals to 3.26 ly

How many light-years of length are in 1 parsec? The answer is: The change of 1 pc ( parsec ) unit of length measure equals = to 3.26 ly ( light-year ) as the equivalent measure for the same length type.

In principle with any measuring task, switched on professional people always ensure, and their success depends on, they get the most precise conversion results everywhere and every-time. Not only whenever possible, it's always so. Often having only a good idea ( or more ideas ) might not be perfect nor good enough solution. If there is an exact known measure in pc - parsecs for length amount, the rule is that the parsec number gets converted into ly - light-years or any other length unit absolutely exactly.

Conversion for how many light-years ( ly ) of length are contained in a parsec ( 1 pc ). Or, how much in light-years of length is in 1 parsec? To link to this length parsec to light-years online converter simply cut and paste the following.
The link to this tool will appear as: length from parsec (pc) to light-years (ly) conversion.
