## How to Convert Micrometers to Miles

To convert a micrometer measurement to a mile measurement, divide the length by the conversion ratio. One mile is equal to 1,609,344,000 micrometers, so use this simple formula to convert:

The length in miles is equal to the micrometers divided by 1,609,344,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5,000,000,000 micrometers to miles using the formula above.

Micrometers and miles are both units used to measure length. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## 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.

## Miles

The mile is a linear measurement of length equal to exactly 1,609.344 meters. One mile is also equal to 5,280 feet or 1,760 yards.

The mile is a US customary and imperial unit of length. Miles can be abbreviated as *mi*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *m*. For example, 1 mile can be written as 1 mi or 1 m.

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.
