Given that

Speed of the light in vacuum is unity = 1 units/second

Time taken by the light t=8\min\ 20s

= 8 * 60 + 20 = 500 seconds


Step 1: Finding the distance between the sun and earth

Formula: \text{ Speed } = \frac{\text{ Distance }}{\text{ time }}

\text{ Distance } = \text{ Speed * time }

\text{ Distance } = 1 \text{ units/sec } * 500 sec

\text{ Distance } = 500 units


Hence, distance between the sun and earth 500 units
