## How to Convert Meters to Micrometers

Convert meters to micrometers with this simple formula:

Converting a meter length measurement to a micrometer measurement involves multiplying the length by the conversion ratio to find the result. One meter is equal to 1,000,000 micrometers, so to convert simply multiply by 1,000,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 meters to micrometers using the formula above.

Meters and micrometers are both units used to measure length.

Meters are a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as *m*, for example 1 m.
Micrometers are a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as *µm*, for example 1 µm.

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 meter is the primary unit of length in the metric system. It's equal to 100 centimeters or 39.37 inches.
Internationally it is actually spelled *metre*. It was first defined 1793 as ^{1}/_{10,000,000} the length from the equator to
the North Pole. The current definition of a meter, adopted
in 1983, is the distance light travels in ^{1}/_{299,792,458} seconds and was adopted to in 1983.

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.
