The average distance between planet X and Earth is about 1.5 x 10^8 miles. How long (minutes would it take pictures transmitted from a space vehicle on Planet X's surface to reach Earth?

• chem -

distance = rate x time
1.5E8 miles = 1.86E5 miles/sec x time(sec)
Solve for time and convert to minutes.
