# Convert Micrometers to Kilometers

## Learn How to Convert Micrometers to Kilometers Using our Conversion Formula

Converting a micrometer length measurement to a kilometer measurement involves multiplying your length by the conversion ratio to find the result. A micrometer is equal to 1.0E-9 kilometers, so to convert simply multiply by 1.0E-9.

For example, 5µm = (5 × 1.0E-9) = 5.0E-9km.

Micrometers and kilometers are both units used to measure length. Learn more about length and

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*.

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.
