## How to perform key conversions involving length measurements

The formulas for conversion are represented below:

### Centimeters to Micrometers Formula

µm = cm * 10000

Example: 30 Centimeters in Micrometers:

µm = cm * 10000

µm = 30 * 10000

µm = 300.000

### Micrometers to Centimeters Formula

cm = µm / 10000

Example: 1 Micrometer in Centimeters:

cm = µm / 10000

cm = 1 / 10000

cm = 0,0001

## Frequently asked questions involving length and distance

### 100 Centimeters are equal to how many Micrometers

Considering that 1 Centimeter is equivalent to 10000 Micrometers, you can use a rule of three to obtain that 100 Centimeters equal 1000000 Micrometers.

1 cm - 10000 µm

100 cm - x

Apply the rule of three and get:

x cm = 1000000 µmcm

x = 1.000.000 µm

### 100 Micrometers equal how many Centimeters?

If every 1 Micrometers we have 0.0001 Centimeters, just multiply the number of Micrometers (100) by 1000, so you will obtain that 100 µm equals 0.01 cm. Observe the calculation below:

cm = µm / 10000

cm = 100 / 10000

cm = 0,01
