Learn How to Convert Micrometers to Yards Using our Conversion Formula

Converting a micrometer length measurement to a yard measurement involves multiplying your length by the conversion ratio to find the result. A micrometer is equal to 1.0936E-6 yards, so to convert simply multiply by 1.0936E-6.

For example, 5µm = (5 × 1.0936E-6) = 5.4681E-6yd.

Micrometers and yards are both units used to measure length. Learn more about length and find more length measurement conversion calculators. A micrometer is a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as µm, for example 1µm. A yard is an imperial measurement and can be abbreviated as yd, for example 1yd. Learn more about the metric system, including the common unit prefixes and how to convert between metric units.

In 1959 the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa agreed to define the yard as yard as exactly 0.9144 meters. Historically the yard has been a common form of measurement with its usage dating back to the Romans. In the US, fabrics and carpeting is sold by the square yard, which is equal to an area 1yd by 1yd.

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.
