## How to Convert Micrometers to Kilometers

Convert micrometers to kilometers with this simple formula:

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

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

Micrometers and kilometers are both units used to measure length.

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

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.
