## How to Convert Miles to Micrometers

To convert a mile measurement to a micrometer measurement, multiply the length by the conversion ratio.

Since one mile is equal to 1,609,344,000 micrometers, you can use this simple formula to convert:

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

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

### How Many Micrometers are in a Mile?

There are **1,609,344,000** micrometers in a mile, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 mi = 1,609,344,000 µm

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

## 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.

## 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.

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.
