13. (a) Let d = 23000 ly = 23000 c y, which would give the distance in meters if we included a conversion factor for years seconds. With t 0 = 30 y and t = d / v (see Eq. 37-10), we wish to solve for v from Eq. 37-7. Our first step is as follows: 0 22 23000 y 30 y , 11 t d t v β ∆= = = −− at which point we can cancel the unit year and manipulate the equation to solve for the
