### Calculation process of conversion value

• 1 astronomical unit = (149597870700) / (3.085677581*10^16) = 4.8481368118674 × 10-6 parsec
• 1 parsec = (3.085677581*10^16) / (149597870700) = 206264.80621425 astronomical unit
• ? astronomical unit × (149597870700  ("m"/"astronomical unit")) / (3.085677581*10^16  ("m"/"parsec")) = ? parsec

### High precision conversion

If conversion between astronomical unit to metre and metre to parsec is exactly definied, high precision conversion from astronomical unit to parsec is enabled.

Since definition contain rounded number(s) too, there is no sense for high precision calculation, but if you want, you can enable it. Keep in mind, that converted number will be inaccurate due this rounding error!
