# Convert Micrometers (μm) to Centimeters (cm)

Please provide the values below to convert from Micrometer (μm) to Centimeters (cm) and vice versa.

### 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.

### What is a Centimeter?

A Centimeter (abbreviation, cm) is a unit for measuring length in the metric system of measurement. A Centimeter is equal to one hundredth of a metre (1/100).

The centimetre remains a practical unit of length for many everyday measurements of the length of objects and small distances.

A meter consists of 100 centimeters, a square meter consists of 10,000 square centimeters, and a cubic meter consists of 1,000,000 cubic centimeters.

### How to Convert Micrometer to Centimeters?

To convert Micrometer to Centimeters, simply divide the Micrometer value by 10000.

The formula used to calculate Micrometer to Centimeters -

d(μm) = d(cm) / 10000

The distance d in Centimeters (cm) is equal to the distance d in Micrometers (μm) divided by 10000.

### How many Centimeters in a Micrometer

In simple terms, 1 μm is equal to 0.0001 cm.

The formula used is 1/10000 = 0.0001(cm)

### How many Micrometers in a Centimeter

1 Centimeter is equal to 10000 Micrometers. So we can also say that there are 10000 Micrometers in a Centimeter.
