How to Convert Miles to Micrometers

Tape measures can be used to measure units of length, and a calculator can be used to convert to another unit

To convert a mile measurement to a micrometer measurement, multiply the length by the conversion ratio. One mile is equal to 1,609,344,000 micrometers, so use this simple formula to convert:

micrometers = miles × 1,609,344,000

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.
5 mi = (5 × 1,609,344,000) = 8,046,720,000 µm

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


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.


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.

If you need a ruler you can also download and print our free printable rulers, which include both imperial and metric measurements.
