## How to Convert Yards to Micrometers

To convert a yard measurement to a micrometer measurement, multiply the length by the conversion ratio. One yard is equal to 914,400 micrometers, so use this simple formula to convert:

The length in micrometers is equal to the yards multiplied by 914,400.

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

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

## Yards

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.

## 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.

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