## How to Convert Micrometers to Centimeters

Convert micrometers to centimeters with this simple formula:

Converting a micrometer length measurement to a centimeter measurement involves multiplying the length by the conversion ratio to find the result. One micrometer is equal to 0.0001 centimeters, so to convert simply multiply by 0.0001.

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

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

Micrometers and centimeters are both units used to measure length.

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

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*.

Internationally the centimeter is actually spelled centimetre and it's equal to 10 millimeters, .01 meters, or .393701 inches. Metric rulers have 30 cm and they are the larger measurement. A standard pencil is just about 1cm thick, and can be used to get a rough idea of the size of a centimeter.

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.
