How to Convert Micrometers to Feet

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

Convert micrometers to feet with this simple formula:

feet = micrometers × 3.2808E-6

Converting a micrometer length measurement to a foot measurement involves multiplying the length by the conversion ratio to find the result. One micrometer is equal to 3.2808E-6 feet, so to convert simply multiply by 3.2808E-6.

For example, here's how to convert 5 micrometers to feet using the formula above.
5 µm = (5 × 3.2808E-6) = 1.6404E-5'

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

Micrometers and feet are both units used to measure length. Learn more about length and find more length measurement conversion calculators. Micrometers are a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as µm, for example 1 µm. Feet are an imperial measurement and can be abbreviated as ft, for example 1 ft. 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.

Unit of Measurement Conversion Made Easy!

There are thousands of units of measure in use across the globe, and converting from one to another can be very difficult since each conversion requires a different formula to derive the result. Our unit of measurement conversion tools are meant to be dead easy. We break the mold of the typical dry and complicated experience. In addition to converting from one measurement to another, we provide the formula so you can see how the conversion is done, use it on you’re own calculator if you need to!

Understanding the Metric System

The metric system makes it relatively easy to convert from one metric unit to another metric unit. The metric system uses a base unit, think meters or grams, and a prefix such as kilo or milli. The prefixes differ from the base units by differing powers of 10. So to convert within the metric system it’s usually a matter of multiplying or dividing by one of the powers of 10.

Here is a list of some of the common metric prefixes:

  • “kilo” – 1,000x larger
  • “hecto” – 100x larger
  • “deca” – 10x larger
  • “deci” – 10x smaller
  • “centi” – 100x smaller
  • “milli” – 1,000x smaller

There is a helpful mnemonic for remembering the prefixes: “King Henry Died Until Drinking Chocolate Milk.”
The u in Until refers to the base unit.
