How to Convert Feet to Micrometers

Tape measures can be used to measure units of length, and a calculator can be used to convert to another unit

Convert feet to micrometers with this simple formula:

micrometers = feet × 304,800

Converting a foot length measurement to a micrometer measurement involves multiplying the length by the conversion ratio to find the result. One foot is equal to 304,800 micrometers, so to convert simply multiply by 304,800.

For example, here's how to convert 5 feet to micrometers using the formula above.
5' = (5 × 304,800) = 1,524,000 µm

Our inch fraction calculator can add feet and micrometers together and it also automatically converts the results to US customary, imperial and SI metric values.

Feet and micrometers are both units used to measure length. Learn more about length and find more length measurement conversion calculators. Feet are an imperial measurement and can be abbreviated as ft, for example 1 ft. Micrometers are a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as µm, for example 1 µm. Learn more about the metric system, including the common unit prefixes and how to convert between metric units.

A human hair is 40-50 micrometers thick or 0.000001 meters, making this a very small unit of measure. The micrometer is often referred to as a micron and internationally it is spelled micrometre.

The foot has been used throughout history to measure length but the actual length varied. In the US it has always been equal to 12 inches and 1/3 of a yard. The standard 12" ruler can be used to measure a foot. In 1959 the world agreed that the yard would be equal to .9144 meters, hence a foot is equal to .3048 meters. In some cases you may need a linear footage measurement, which is simply the value of a length in feet, learn more.

A typical ruler has 12 inches, equal to 1 foot.

We recommend using a ruler or tape measure for measuring length, which can be found at a local retailer or home center. Rulers are available in imperial, metric, or combination with both values, so make sure you get the correct type for your needs. If you need a ruler you can also download and print our free printable rulers which include both imperial and metric measurements.
