## How to Convert Micrometers to Feet To convert a micrometer measurement to a foot measurement, divide the length by the conversion ratio. One foot is equal to 304,800 micrometers, so use this simple formula to convert:

feet = micrometers ÷ 304,800

The length in feet is equal to the micrometers divided by 304,800.

For example, here's how to convert 500,000 micrometers to feet using the formula above.
500,000 µm = (500,000 ÷ 304,800) = 1.64042'

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

One micrometer is equal to one-millionth (1/1,000,000) of a meter, which is defined as the distance light travels in a vacuum in a 1/299,792,458 second time interval.

The micrometer, or micrometre, is a multiple of the meter, which is the SI base unit for length. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for 10-6. A micrometer is sometimes also referred to as a micron. Micrometers can be abbreviated as µm, for example 1 micrometer can be written as 1 µm.

To get an idea of the actual physical length of a micrometer, one human hair is 40-50 µm thick, demonstrating how small this unit of measure is.

## Feet

The foot is a unit of linear length measure equal to 12 inches or 1/3 of a yard. Because the international yard is legally defined to be equal to exactly 0.9144 meters, one foot is equal to 0.3048 meters.

The foot is a US customary and imperial unit of length. Feet can be abbreviated as ft, for example 1 foot can be written as 1 ft.

Feet can also be denoted using the symbol, otherwise know as a prime, though a single-quote (') is often used instead of the prime symbol for convenience. Using the prime, 1 ft can be written as 1′.

The foot is most commonly measured using either a standard 12" ruler or a tape measure, though there are many other measuring devices available.. Feet are sometimes referred to as linear feet, which is simply the value of a length in feet, learn more.

You might be interested in our feet and inches calculator, which can add feet with inches, centimeters, or meters.

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.
