Speed Of Light Trivia Quiz

The speed of light is considered a constant. It is defined as the speed at which light travels through any material or space. The speed of light through a vacuum has been the center of the universal physical constant that is important in many areas of Physics. Speed through a vacuum is the highest speed at which all matters can travel through the vacuum. Are you aware of the speed of light? Try this quiz.
