The backpack was light enough for Jimmy to carry.2. Describing something which is not dark or of a deep color: Delores has light hair and a light complexion.
2. A form of energy that makes it possible to see things; especially, at night: It was time to turn on the living room light.
During the storm, Lenora and her family had to use candles so they could have enough light to see their way around because the electricity had been cut off.
Because Ed wants to be light on his feet, he tends to eat lite cheese. His favorite lite cheese is light yellow in color and is made in Oregon, USA.
Latin: Apollo (god, also called Phoebus Apollo)

2. Illumination from a candle or candles.
3. Dusk; twilight; the time to light a candle.
A baker consists of two or more electric lamps mounted in semicircular containers used for applying heat to various parts of the body.
2. Any form of lighting produced by an electric current in any one of several devices; for example, a fluorescent lamp, an arc lamp, an incandescent lamp, etc.
Its therapeutic effect depends on the heat from the electric lights.
2. The theory that light consists of electromagnetic radiation and therefore obeys Maxwell's equations; contrasted with earlier concepts that light was a stream of tiny particles or light was a wave in a medium of ether.
Maxwell's equations consists of the four fundamental equations that describe the behavior of electric and magnetic fields in time and space and the dependence of these fields on the distribution and behavior of electric charges and currents.
These four partial differential equations relate to the electric and magnetic fields to their sources, charge density, and current density.
2. A high-intensity flashing beam of light produced by charging a capacitor to a very high voltage then discharging it as a high-intensity flash of light in a tube.
3. A lamp that produces very short, intense flashes of light by means of an electric discharge in a gas.
The ability of strobe lights, or electronic flashes, to "freeze" the motion of rapidly moving objects by making them visible for only a fraction of a second makes them very useful in photography and in measuring vibration and other types of high-speed motion.
From the red lights traditionally displayed in the doors and windows of brothels. Note: there is no explanation in the dictionary as to why they "displayed" the "red lights".
2. An area or district in a city in which many houses of prostitution are located [1890-95; allegedly so called because brothels displayed red lights].
At least in the U.S., some say the origin of the red light comes from the red lanterns carried by railway workers, which were left outside brothels when the workers entered, so that they could be quickly located when the trains were ready to leave.
An an average speed of 186,291 miles or 299,792 kilometers, per second; which equals approximately 5.88 trillion miles or 9.4607 trillion kilometers, or 63,246 astronomical units.
The light-year is also divided into light-minutes and light-seconds; for example, the moon is 1.3 light-seconds from the earth; the sun is 8.3 light-minutes away from the earth.
Although a light-year is a measurement of distance and not time, it does imply time; such as, the light from a star that is ten light-years from the earth takes ten years to reach the earth; so, an observer on earth is seeing the star as it appeared ten years ago.
