# How to convert from Meters to Light years

Since 1 meter is equal to 1.057E-16 light years, we could say that n meters are equal to 1.057E-16 times n light years. In other words, we could use the following formula:

light years = meters x 1.057E-16

For example, let's say that we want to convert 2 meters to light years. Then, we just replace meters in the abovementioned formula with 2:

light years = 2 x 1.057E-16

That is, 2 meters are equal to 2.114e-16 light years.
