To find out the distance between moon and earth, we send a radar signal from earth which will be reflected from the surface of moon back to the receiver. If the time between sending and receiving of the signal be “ t ” and “ v ” be the velocity of the signal, the distance between moon and the earth is v * t / 2. A radar signal travels with the velocity of light i.e. equal to 3 * 108 m/s.
