## How to Convert Microseconds to Seconds

To convert a microsecond measurement to a second measurement, multiply the time by the conversion ratio. One microsecond is equal to 1.0E-6 seconds, so use this simple formula to convert:

The time in seconds is equal to the microseconds multiplied by 1.0E-6.

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

Microseconds and seconds are both units used to measure time. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Microseconds

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 10^{-6}. Microseconds can be abbreviated as *µs*, for example 1 microsecond can be written as 1 µs.

## Seconds

The second has historically been defined as 1/60 of a minute or 1/86,400 of a day. The SI defines the second as the duration of 9,192,631,770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the caesium 133 atom.

The second is the SI base unit for time in the metric system. Seconds can be abbreviated as *sec*, for example 1 second can be written as 1 sec.
