Our micrometer to kilometer(µm to km) conversion tool is a free converter that enables you to convert from micrometer to kilometer easily.

## How to Convert micrometer to kilometer

To convert a micrometer measurement(µm) to a kilometer measurement(km), divide the length by the conversion ratio. Since one Kilometer is equal to 1,000,000,000 Micrometers, you can use this simple formula to convert:

### What is the formula to convert from micrometer to kilometer?

kilometer=µm / 1,000,000,000

### Convert 5 micrometer to Kilometer

5 µm = (5 / 1,000,000,000) = 5e-9km

### Convert 10 micrometer to Kilometer

10 µm = (10 / 1,000,000,000) = 1e-8 km

### Convert 100 micrometer to Kilometer

100 µm = (100 / 1,000,000,000) = 1e-7km

## Micrometer

### What is a Micrometer?

Micrometer ormicrometre, also called micron is a metric unit of measure for length equal to 0.001 mm, or about 0.000039 inch. Its symbol is μm. The micrometre is commonly employed to measure the thickness or diameter of microscopic objects, such as microorganisms and colloidal particles.

Micrometer can be abbreviated as µm; for example, 1 Micrometer can be written as 1µm.

### What is the Micrometer used for?

Micrometers are specially designed for the measurement of tiny objects. They allow for the exact measurement of any item that fits between the anvil and spindle. Standard types of micrometers can be used for the acceptable measurement of items under one inch in length, depth, and thickness.

## Kilometer

### What is a Kilometer?

A kilometer (km) is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). One kilometer is equivalent to 0.6214 miles.

A kilometer can be abbreviated as km; for example, 1 Kilometer can be written as 1km.

### What is the Kilometer used for?

It is currently the official unit of measuring distances between geographical places on land in most of the world. However, several countries use the mile instead of the kilometer. These countries include the United States and the United Kingdom (UK). Unlike the United States, the UK has adopted the metric system; while the metric system is widely used in government, commerce, and industry, remnants of the imperial system can still be seen in the UK's use of miles in its road systems.
