The formulas for conversion are represented below:

µm = cm * 10000

Example: 30 Centimeters in Micrometers:

µm = cm * 10000

µm = 30 * 10000

µm = 300.000

cm = µm / 10000

Example: 1 Micrometer in Centimeters:

cm = µm / 10000

cm = 1 / 10000

cm = 0,0001

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 µm~~cm~~

x = 1.000.000 µm

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
