# A LASER is a source of very intense, monochromatic, and unidirectional beam of light. These properties of a laser light can be exploited to measure long distances. The distance of the Moon from the Earth has been already determined very precisely using a laser as a source of light. A laser light beamed at the Moon takes 2.56 s to return after reflection at the Moon's surface. How much is the radius of the lunar orbit around the Earth?

$\begin {array} {1 1} (A)\;3.84 \times 10^5 km & \quad (B)\;38.4 \times 10^5 km \\ (C)\;3.84 \times 10^9 km & \quad (D)\;38.4 \times 10^9 km \end {array}$
