Experimenters at the National Institute of Standards and Technology have made precise measurements of the speed of light using the fact that, in vacuum, the speed of electromagnetic waves is c = 1/√(μ0ε0), where the constants μ0 = 4π 10-7 N · s2/C2 and ε0 = 8.854 10-12 C2/N · m2. What value (to four significant figures) does this give for the speed of light in vacuum?
_____ m/s
