the time required time required for light to travel in the fiber optics. Fiber optics is simply given by our TV musical to distance, divided by the speed off lighting a fire optics. We can write the speed of light and a fiber optics using the refracting next speaker, flighting reckon derived by n frantic knicks off the five or six. Simplifying this expression gives us an X divided by sea. So substantive readies from the problem, the refracting. Next we hear he's a 1.55 times the distance, the 0.2220 meters divided by speed of flight. In the record, which is three times 10 to the power eat so soon defying this expression uses 1.3 nanoseconds.
