To generally apply the following relativistic equations, distances must be reckoned in related lighttime units according to the
simple rules given below. This allows for simplified relativistic motion equations expressed in terms of basic spacetime geometry.
The distance units and the value of S used depends on the choice of time units used in the computations.
 IN THE COMPUTATIONS:
 c = Speed of Light = 299792458 m/s
 g = Standard gravitational acceleration rate on Earth; = 9.80665 m/s² = G factor 1.0
 a = General acceleration rate in m/s; = g × (G factor)
 G = G factor = a/g
 1 AU = 149597870700 m
 1 Standard (Julian) Year = 31557600 seconds; = 365.25 days
 If time is to be reckoned in seconds, then distances must be reckoned in light seconds.
S = 1 = Seconds per second 1 Light Second = 299792458 m = 0.002003988804100004 AU
 If time is to be reckoned in minutes, then distances must be reckoned in light minutes.
S = 60 = Seconds per minute 1 Light Minute = 17987547480 m = 0.1202393282460002 AU
 If time is to be reckoned in hours, then distances must be reckoned in light hours.
S = 3600 = Seconds per hour 1 Light Hour = 1079252848800 m = 7.2143596947600137 AU
 If time is to be reckoned in days, then distances must be reckoned in light days.
S = 86400 = Seconds per day 1 Light Day = 25902068371200 m = 173.1446326742403293 AU
 If time is to be reckoned in weeks, then distances must be reckoned in light weeks.
S = 604800 = Seconds per week 1 Light Week = 181314478598400 m = 1212.0124287196823049 AU
 If time is to be reckoned in years, then distances must be reckoned in light years (default).
S = 31577600 = Seconds per standard (Julian) year of 365.25 days 1 Light Year = 9466726321740800 m = 63281.1568603482803449 AU
