Convert Inches (in) to Micrometers (μm)

Please provide the values below to convert from Inch (in) to Micrometers (μm) and vice versa.

What is a Inch?

The inch (symbol: in or ″) is a unit of length in the British imperial and the United States customary systems of measurement. An inch in the metric system equals 2.54 cm, or 1/36 yard or 1/12 of a foot.

What is a Micrometer?

The Micrometre (SI symbol: μm) or micrometer (American spelling), also commonly known as a micron, is a unit of length equalling 1×10−6 meter (SI standard prefix "micro-" = 10−6); that is, one-millionth of a meter (or one-thousandth of a millimeter, 0.001 mm, or about 0.00004 inches).

A micrometer is a standard unit of measurement used to measure wavelengths of infrared radiations, sizes of biological cells and bacteria, and for grading wool by the diameter of the fibers.

The width of a single human hair ranges from approximately 20 to 200 μm. The longest human chromosome, chromosome 1, is approximately 10 μm in length.

How to Convert Inch to Micrometers?

To convert Inch to Micrometers, simply multiply the Inch value by 25400.

The formula used to calculate Inch to Micrometers -

d(in) = d(μm) * 25400

The distance d in Micrometers (μm) is equal to the distance d in Inches (in) multiplied by 25400.

How many Micrometers in a Inch

In simple terms, 1 in is equal to 25400 μm.
