# Feet (ft) to Micrometers (µm) Converter

This length unit converter dynamically calculates the value you enter in feet (ft) and converts it to its equivalent value in micrometers (µm).

## How many feet (ft) are in 1 micrometer (µm)? What is the formula for how to convert feet to micrometers (ft to µm)?

1 foot (ft) = 304,800 micrometers (µm)
So we can say that there is 304,800 micrometers in 1 foot.
This means that the multiplication conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a foot unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a micrometer unit of measurement is 304,800.

Inversely (or reciprocally),

1 micrometer (µm) = 0.0000032808398950131 foot (ft)
So we can say that there is 0.0000032808398950131 foot in 1 micrometer.
This means that the division conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a foot unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a micrometer unit of measurement is 0.0000032808398950131.

Knowing this inverse mathematical relationship between the two conversion factors and their reciprocal operations, we can derive two formulas to calculate and convert a quantity of length expressed in feet to an equivalent quantity of length expressed in micrometers (ft to µm). Both formulas will yield the same result. The formulas are:

`µm = ft × 304,800    → This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.`

and

`µm = ft ÷ 0.0000032808398950131    → This is the formula based on the division conversion factor.`

For example, if you have a length of 35 feet that you want to convert to micrometers, you would use either of the two formulas as follows:

`µm = 35 ft × 304,800 = 10,668,000 µm`
`µm = 35 ft ÷ 0.0000032808398950131 = 10,668,000 µm`

So, the result is the same using either formula, which is 10,668,000 micrometers.

## Feet to micrometers (ft to µm) conversion chart

To save you time and effort spent on having to perform manual calculations or look up conversion formulas every time a conversion from feet to micrometers is needed, here is a feet-to-micrometers conversion chart for your quick and easy reference. This conversion chart (or conversion table) shows common measurement values of length in feet and their equivalent measurement values in micrometers. These equivalent measurement values may be rounded off to 1 or 2 decimal places when it is mathematically expedient for everyday applications.

## What is a foot (ft)?

Definition of foot: A foot is an imperial and US customary unit of length equivalent to 12 inches or 0.3048 meters. It is commonly used in the United States and the United Kingdom for measuring height, furniture dimensions and some sports distances.

The abbreviation for foot is ft.

The informal symbol for foot is represented by a single prime (′) or single quote (‘). For example, 6 feet can be written as 6′.

## What is a micrometer (µm)?

Definition of micrometer: A micrometer, also known as a micron, is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). It is equal to one millionth of a meter (10^-6 m). It is frequently used in scientific and industrial applications to measure very small distances such as cells, bacteria, and fine particles.

The term “micrometer” (µm) is the technically correct and preferred term according to the International System of Units (SI). But the term “micron” is more commonly used in everyday usage.

The abbreviation for micrometer is μm. The single Unicode character (U+339B) represents the 2-character Greek/Latin abbreviation for micrometer. The Windows Alt code for this character is Alt + 13211.
