# Convert Yards (yd) to Micrometers (μm)

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

### What is a Yard?

The yard (symbol: yd) is an English unit of length in the British imperial and US customary measurement systems equalling 3 feet or 36 inches. Since 1959 it has been by international agreement standardized as exactly 0.9144 meters. A distance of 1,760 yards is equal to 1 mile.

### 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 Yard to Micrometers?

To convert Yard to Micrometers, simply multiply the Yard value by 914400.

The formula used to calculate Yard to Micrometers -

d(yd) = d(μm) * 914400

The distance d in Micrometers (μm) is equal to the distance d in Yards (yd) multiplied by 914400.

### How many Micrometers in a Yard

In simple terms, 1 yd is equal to 914400 μm.

The formula used is 1*914400 = 914400(μm)

### How many Yards in a Micrometer

1 Micrometer is equal to 1.093613e-06 Yards. So we can also say that there are 1.093613e-06 Yards in a Micrometer.
