### 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 Meter?

**Meter** (abbreviation, m), also spelled as Metre(Commonwealth spelling), is the base unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). The SI unit symbol is m.

In the imperial system, a meter is equal to about 3.2 feet or 3 feet 3 inches.

The metric system is the standard of measurement used nearly everywhere in the world except in the United States; thus, it is the primary measurement system for scientific studies. Today, only the United States, Burma, and Liberia use the imperial system, and all other countries use the metric system.

### How to Convert Micrometer to Meters?

To convert Micrometer to Meters, simply divide the Micrometer value by 1000000.

The formula used to calculate Micrometer to Meters -

**d**_{(μm)} = **d**_{(m)} / 1000000

The distance *d* in Meters (m) is equal to the distance *d* in Micrometers (μm) divided by 1000000.

### How many Meters in a Micrometer

In simple terms, 1 μm is equal to 1e-06 m.

The formula used is 1/1000000 = 1e-06(m)

### How many Micrometers in a Meter

1 Meter is equal to 1000000 Micrometers. So we can also say that there are 1000000 Micrometers in a Meter.
