Micrometers (µm) to Centimeters (cm) Converter

This length unit converter dynamically calculates a value you enter in micrometers (µm) and converts it to its equivalent value in centimeters (cm). A micrometer is also known as a micron.

How many micrometers (µm) are in a centimeter (cm)? What is the formula for how to convert micrometers to centimeters (µm to cm)?

1 micrometer (µm) = 0.0001 centimeter (cm)
So we can say that there is 0.0001 centimeter in 1 micrometer.
This means that the multiplication conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a micrometer unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a centimeter unit of measurement is 0.0001.

Inversely (or reciprocally),

1 centimeter (cm) = 10,000 micrometers (µm)
So we can say that there is 10,000 micrometers in 1 centimeter.
This means that the division conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a micrometer unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a centimeter unit of measurement is 10,000.

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 micrometers to an equivalent quantity of length expressed in centimeters (µm to cm). Both formulas will yield the same result. The formulas are:

cm = µm × 0.0001    → This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.

and

cm = µm ÷ 10,000    → This is the formula based on the division conversion factor.

For example, if you have a length of 75000 micrometers that you want to convert to centimeters, you would use either of the two formulas as follows:

cm = 75000 µm × 0.0001 = 7.5 cm
cm = 75000 µm ÷ 10,000 = 7.5 cm

So, the result is the same using either formula, which is 7.5 centimeters.

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.

What is a centimeter (cm)?

Definition of centimeter: A centimeter is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI), commonly known as the metric system. It is equal to one hundredth of a meter (10^-2 m). It is often used for everyday measurements involving shorter distances than meters, such as human height.

The abbreviation for centimeter is cm. The single Unicode character ㎝ (U+339D) represents the 2-character Latin abbreviation for centimeter. The Windows Alt code for this character ㎝ is Alt + 13213.
