How to Convert Yards 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 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:

micrometers = yards × 914,400

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.
5 yd = (5 × 914,400) = 4,572,000 µm

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


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.


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.
