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

## How to Convert millimeter to micrometer

To convert a millimeter measurement(mm) to a micrometer measurement(µm), divide the length by the conversion ratio. Since 1 millimeter is equal to 1,000 micrometers, you can use this simple formula to convert:

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

micrometer=mm * 1,000

### Convert 5 millimeters to Micrometer

5 mm = (5 * 1,000) = 5,000µm

### Convert 10 millimeters to Micrometer

10 mm = (10 * 1,000) = 10,000 µm

### Convert 100 millimeters to Micrometer

100 mm = (100 * 1,000) = 100,000µm

## Millimeter

### What is a Millimeter?

A millimeter (mm) is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). It is defined in terms of the meter as 1/1000 of a meter, or the distance traveled by light in 1/299 792 458 000 of a second.

A millimeter can be abbreviated as mm; for example, 1 millimeter can be written as 1mm.

### What is the millimeter used for?

Millimeters are used to measure small but visible-scale distances and lengths. In terms of real-world comparisons, a millimeter is roughly the size of the wire used in a standard paper clip. It is also sometimes used mm Japan (as well as other countries) mm relation to electronic parts, like the size of display screens.

## 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.
