## How many millimeters (mm) are in a micrometer (µm)? What is the formula for how to convert millimeters to micrometers (mm to µm)?

**1 millimeter (mm) = 1,000 micrometers (µm)**

So we can say that there is 1,000 micrometers in 1 millimeter.

This means that the multiplication conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a millimeter unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a micrometer unit of measurement is 1,000.

Inversely (or reciprocally),

**1 micrometer (µm) = 0.001 millimeter (mm)**

So we can say that there is 0.001 millimeter in 1 micrometer.

This means that the division conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a millimeter unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a micrometer unit of measurement is 0.001.

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

µm = mm × 1,000→ This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.

and

µm = mm ÷ 0.001→ This is the formula based on the division conversion factor.

For example, if you have a length of 80 millimeters that you want to convert to micrometers, you would use either of the two formulas as follows:

µm = 80 mm × 1,000 = 80,000 µm

µm = 80 mm ÷ 0.001 = 80,000 µm

So, the result is the same using either formula, which is 80,000 micrometers.

## Millimeters to micrometers (mm 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 millimeters to micrometers is needed, here is a millimeters-to-micrometers conversion chart for your quick and easy reference. This conversion chart (or conversion table) shows common measurement values of length in millimeters and their equivalent measurement values in micrometers.

## What is a millimeter (mm)?

Definition of millimeter: A millimeter is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). It is equivalent to one thousandth of a meter (10^-3 m). It is commonly used for precisely measuring small lengths and dimensions such as mechanical parts in engineering and manufacturing.

The abbreviation for millimeter is mm. The single Unicode character ㎜ (U+339C) represents the 2-character Latin abbreviation for millimeter. The Windows Alt code for this character ㎜ is Alt + 13212.

## 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.
