What is the distance of one light year in kilometers?

- 2.59 × 10
^{10}km - 1.58 × 10
^{11}km - 2.63 × 10
^{9}km - 9.46 × 10
^{12}km

How does the illuminance of light change when the distance from the light source is tripled? Cite the relevant equation and explain how it supports your answer.

- $\text{Illuminance=}\frac{P}{\text{4}\pi {r}^{\text{2}}}\text{;}$ if distance is tripled, then the illuminance increases by 19 times.
- $\text{Illuminance=}\frac{P}{\text{4}\pi r}\text{;}$ if distance is tripled, then the illuminance decreases by 13 times.
- $\text{Illuminance=}P\text{\xb74}\pi {r}^{\text{2}}\text{;}$ if distance is tripled, then the illuminance decreases by 9 times.
- $\text{Illuminance=}P\text{\xb74}\pi r\text{;}$ if distance tripled, then the illuminance increases by 3 times.
