## How to convert

1 parsec (pc) = 1.66613E+13 nautical mile (nmi). Parsec (pc) is a unit of Length used in Metric system. Nautical Mile (nmi) is a unit of Length used in Standard system.

## Parsec: A Unit of Length

A parsec is a unit of length that is often used in astronomy to measure the large distances to astronomical objects outside the Solar System. It is approximately equal to 3.26 light-years or 206,265 astronomical units (au), which are the average distances from the Earth to the Sun. One parsec is about 30.9 trillion kilometres or 19.2 trillion miles.

## How to convert parsec

To convert parsecs to other units of length, we can use the following conversion factors:

• 1 pc = 3.0857 × 10^16 m
• 1 pc = 1.9174 × 10^13 mi
• 1 pc = 2.06265 × 10^5 au
• 1 pc = 3.26156 ly

To convert other units of length to parsecs, we can use the inverse of these conversion factors:

• 1 m = 3.24078 × 10^-17 pc
• 1 mi = 5.21553 × 10^-14 pc
• 1 au = 4.84814 × 10^-6 pc
• 1 ly = 0.306601 pc
• How many parsecs are in one light-year?

To convert one light-year to parsecs, we divide by the conversion factor:

1 ly / (3.26156 ly/pc) = 0.306601 pc

## Nautical Mile: A Unit of Length

A nautical mile is a unit of length that is used in air, marine, and space navigation, and for the definition of territorial waters. It is based on the Earth’s longitude and latitude coordinates, and is equal to one minute of arc along a meridian. In this article, we will explore the definition, history, uses, and conversions of the nautical mile.

## How to Convert Nautical Mile

The nautical mile can be converted to other units of length using simple multiplication or division by a conversion factor. Here are some common conversion factors:

Unit
Conversion Factor
Metre 1,852
Foot 6,076
Statute mile 1.151
Kilometre 1.852
Yard 2,025

For example, to convert 10 nautical miles to kilometres, we multiply by 1.852:

10 NM × 1.852 = 18.52 km

To convert 50 kilometres to nautical miles, we divide by 1.852:

50 km ÷ 1.852 = 27 NM

The international nautical mile was defined as exactly 1,852 meters in 1929.
