How to Convert Seconds to Microseconds

conversion scale showing seconds and equivalent microseconds time values

To convert a second measurement to a microsecond measurement, multiply the time by the conversion ratio. One second is equal to 1,000,000 microseconds, so use this simple formula to convert:

microseconds = seconds × 1,000,000

The time in microseconds is equal to the seconds multiplied by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 seconds to microseconds using the formula above.
5 sec = (5 × 1,000,000) = 5,000,000 µs

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

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.

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.
