## How to Convert centimeter to micrometers

To convert a centimeter measurement(cm) to a micrometers measurement(µm), divide the length by the conversion ratio. Since one Micrometers is equal to 30.48 Centimeter, you can use this simple formula to convert:

### What is the formula to convert from centimeter to micrometers?

micrometer=cm / 10

### Convert 5 centimeter to Micrometers

5 cm = (5 / 10000) = 50,000µm

### Convert 10 centimeter to Micrometers

10 cm = (10 / 10000) = 100,000 µm

### Convert 100 centimeter to Micrometers

100 cm = (100 / 10000) = 1,000,000µm
