## How to Convert Micrometers to Yards

Convert micrometers to yards with this simple formula:

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

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

Micrometers and yards are both units used to measure length.

Micrometers are a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as *µm*, for example 1 µm.
Yards are an imperial measurement and can be abbreviated as *yd*, for example 1 yd.

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.
