To convert a measurement of length in micrometers to meters, divide the number of micrometers by one million to get the distance in meters.
Continue ReadingA micrometer, also known as a micron, is a unit of length equal to one millionth of a meter. There are 1,000,000 micrometers in one meter, so the conversion value between micrometers and meters is one million.
To convert micrometers to meters, divide the number of micrometers by one million. For example: 900,000 micrometers / 1,000,000 = 0.9.
The final step in converting micrometers to meters is to make sure the length is labeled with the correct unit of measurement. Continuing with the example, 900,000 micrometers equals 0.9 meters.
