    Answer:

    2.59\times 10^{13}\ m

    Explanation:

    The speed of light is 3.0 x 10⁸ m/s

    We need to find the distance traveled by it in one day.

    1 day = 24 hours

    1 day = 24 × 3600 seconds

    = 86400 s

    Now, using the formula of speed to find the distance covered as follows :

    d=v\times t

    Putting all the values, we get :

    d=3\times 10^8\ m/s\times 86400\ s\\\\d=2.59\times 10^{13}\ m

    Hence, light will cover 2.59\times 10^{13}\ m of distance in one day.
