The information from an internet web host may sometimes reach your computer by traveling as light to a satellite approximately 3.6 x 107 meters above Earth's surface and back again. What is the minimum time, in seconds, that the information takes to reach your computers?

  • Physics -

    time = distance/speed

    So, divide that distance by the speed of light.
