# How to convert from Parsecs to Light years

Since 1 parsec is equal to 3.26163346052551 light years, we could say that n parsecs are equal to 3.26163346052551 times n light years. In other words, we could use the following formula:

light years = parsecs x 3.26163346052551

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

light years = 2 x 3.26163346052551

That is, 2 parsecs are equal to 6.52326692105 light years.
