## How to Convert Microseconds to Hours

To convert a measurement in microseconds to a measurement in hours, divide the time by the following conversion ratio: 3,600,000,000 microseconds/hour.

Since one hour is equal to 3,600,000,000 microseconds, you can use this simple formula to convert:

hours = microseconds ÷ 3,600,000,000

The time in hours is equal to the time in microseconds divided by 3,600,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000,000 microseconds to hours using the formula above.
hours = (5,000,000,000 µs ÷ 3,600,000,000) = 1.388889 hr

## What Is a Microsecond?

One microsecond is equal to 1/1,000 of a millisecond or 1,000 nanoseconds.

The microsecond is a multiple of the second, which is the SI base unit for time. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for millionths, or 10-6. Microseconds can be abbreviated as µs; for example, 1 microsecond can be written as 1 µs.

## What Is an Hour?

The hour is a period of time equal to 1/24 of a day or 60 minutes.

The hour is an SI accepted unit for time for use with the metric system. Hours can be abbreviated as hr (plural hrs); for example, 1 hour can be written as 1 hr, and 2 hours can be written as 2 hrs.
