## How to Convert Nanometers to Micrometers

Convert nanometers to micrometers with this simple formula:

Converting a nanometer length measurement to a micrometer measurement involves multiplying the length by the conversion ratio to find the result. One nanometer is equal to 0.001 micrometers, so to convert simply multiply by 0.001.

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

Nanometers and micrometers are both units used to measure length.

find more length measurement conversion calculators.
Nanometers are a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as *nm*, for example 1 nm.
Micrometers are a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as *µm*, for example 1 µm.

A nanometer is an extremely small unit of length measurement, equal to one billionth of a meter. The nanometer
is used to measure things that are very small, such as the transistors and electrical pathways in computer processors
and nanotechnology. Internationally it is spelled *nanometre*.

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.
