How to Convert Yards to Micrometers
To convert a yard measurement to a micrometer measurement, multiply the length by the following conversion ratio: 914,400 micrometers/yard.
Since one yard is equal to 914,400 micrometers, you can use this simple formula to convert:
The length in micrometers is equal to the yards multiplied by 914,400.
How Many Micrometers Are in a Yard?
There are 914,400 micrometers in a yard, which is why we use this value in the formula above.
1 yd = 914,400 µm
Yards and micrometers are both units used to measure length. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
What is a Yard?
The yard is a unit of length measurement equal to 3 feet or 36 inches. The international yard is legally defined to be equal to exactly 0.9144 meters.
The yard is a US customary and imperial unit of length. Yards can be abbreviated as yd; for example, 1 yard can be written as 1 yd.

What is a Micrometer?
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 millionths, or 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 a combination of both values, so make sure you get the correct type for your needs.
