Our micrometer to meter(µm to m) conversion tool is a free converter that enables you to convert from micrometer to meter easily.

## How to Convert micrometer to meter

To convert a micrometer measurement(µm) to a meter measurement(m), divide the length by the conversion ratio. Since one Meter is equal to 1,000,000,000 Micrometers, you can use this simple formula to convert:

### What is the formula to convert from micrometer to meter?

meter=µm / 1,000,000

### Convert 5 micrometer to Meter

5 µm = (5 / 1,000,000) = 0.000005m

### Convert 10 micrometer to Meter

10 µm = (10 / 1,000,000) = 0.00001 m

### Convert 100 micrometer to Meter

100 µm = (100 / 1,000,000) = 0.0001 m

## Micrometer

### What is a Micrometer?

Micrometer ormicrometre, also called micron is a metric unit of measure for length equal to 0.001 mm, or about 0.000039 inch. Its symbol is μm. The micrometre is commonly employed to measure the thickness or diameter of microscopic objects, such as microorganisms and colloidal particles.

Micrometer can be abbreviated as µm; for example, 1 Micrometer can be written as 1µm.

### What is the Micrometer used for?

Micrometers are specially designed for the measurement of tiny objects. They allow for the exact measurement of any item that fits between the anvil and spindle. Standard types of micrometers can be used for the acceptable measurement of items under one inch in length, depth, and thickness.

## Meter

### What is a Meter?

A meter, or metre (m), is the length and distance base unit in the International System of Units (SI). The meter is defined as the distance traveled by light in 1/299 792 458 of a second. This definition was modified in 2019 to reflect changes in the definition of the second.

Meter can be abbreviated as m; for example, 1 Meter can be written as 1m.

### What is the Meter used for?

The meter is used worldwide in many applications, such as measuring distance, being the SI unit of length. The United States is one notable exception in that it primarily uses US customary units such as yards, inches, feet, and miles instead of meters in everyday use.
