Convert Micrometers (μm) to Millimeters (mm)

Please provide the values below to convert from Micrometer (μm) to Millimeters (mm) 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 Millimeter?

The Millimetre (international spelling; SI unit symbol mm) or millimeter (American spelling) is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to one-thousandth of a meter, which is the SI base unit of length. Therefore, there are one thousand millimeters in a meter and ten millimeters in a centimeter.

How to Convert Micrometer to Millimeters?

To convert Micrometer to Millimeters, simply divide the Micrometer value by 1000.

The formula used to calculate Micrometer to Millimeters -

d(μm) = d(mm) / 1000

The distance d in Millimeters (mm) is equal to the distance d in Micrometers (μm) divided by 1000.

How many Millimeters in a Micrometer

In simple terms, 1 μm is equal to 0.001 mm.

The formula used is 1/1000 = 0.001(mm)

How many Micrometers in a Millimeter

1 Millimeter is equal to 1000 Micrometers. So we can also say that there are 1000 Micrometers in a Millimeter.
