How to convert1 microinch (µin) = 2.77778E08 yard (yd). Microinch (µin) is a unit of Length used in Standard system. Yard (yd) is a unit of Length used in Standard system. Microinch: A Unit of LengthThe microinch is a unit of length that is equal to one millionth of an inch (0.000001 inch). It is a nonSI unit of measurement that is mainly used in engineering and manufacturing fields. The symbol for microinch is µin or µ". The microinch is also a derived unit in the British imperial and US customary systems of measurement. The microinch is most commonly used when expressing small distances or dimensions, such as the surface roughness or flatness of materials and parts. The microinch is also used for measuring the wavelength of light and other electromagnetic waves. In this article, we will explore the definition, history, usage and conversion of the microinch as a unit of length. Definition of the MicroinchThe microinch is a unit of length that is equal to one millionth of an inch (0.000001 inch). It is defined as 25.4 nanometers or 2.54 × 10^8 meters by international agreement in 1959. One inch is equal to 25.4 millimeters or 0.0254 meter. The definition of the microinch has changed over time, as different standards and methods of measurement were developed by various countries and organizations. The current definition of the microinch as based on the meter was agreed upon by an international treaty in 1959. History of the MicroinchThe origin of the microinch as a unit of length can be traced back to the early 20th century, when it was introduced by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) as a standard for measuring surface roughness. Surface roughness is a measure of how smooth or irregular a surface is, which affects its friction, wear and corrosion properties. The microinch was adopted by other countries and industries that followed the American system of measurement, such as Canada and Japan. It was also incorporated into the ANSI/ASME B46.1 standard for surface texture in 1985. The microinch was also used by some optical scientists and engineers to measure the wavelength of light and other electromagnetic waves. For example, the visible spectrum of light ranges from about 4,000 to 7,000 microinches. Usage of the MicroinchThe microinch is a unit of length that is used for measuring small distances or dimensions, such as the surface roughness or flatness of materials and parts. For example:
The microinch is commonly used in engineering and manufacturing fields, especially in precision machining, metrology and quality control. Some examples are:
The microinch is also used for measuring the wavelength of light and other electromagnetic waves. For example:
Example Conversions of Microinch to Other UnitsThe microinch can be converted to other units of length by using different factors and formulas. Here are some examples of conversion for different types of units:
1 µin / 1,000,000 = 0.000001 in
1 µin / 12,000,000 = 8.333 × 10^^{8} ft
1 µin / 36,000,000 = 2.778 × 10^^{8} yd
1 µin x 2.54 × 10^8 = 2.54 × 10^^{8} m
1 µin x 2.54 × 10^14 = 2.54 × 10^^{14} km
1 µin x 25.4 = 25.4 nm
1 in x 1,000,000 = 1,000,000 µin
1 ft x 12,000,000 = 12,000,000 µin
1 yd x 36,000,000 = 36,000,000 µin
1 m / 2.54 × 10^^{8} = 39,370,078.74 µin
1 km / 2.54 × 10^14 = 39,370,078,740,157.48 µin
1 nm / 25.4 = 0.03937 µin Yard: A Unit of LengthA yard is a unit of length that is equal to 3 feet or 36 inches in the imperial and U.S. customary systems of measurement. It is also equal to 0.9144 meter in the International System of Units (SI). A distance of 1,760 yards is equal to 1 mile. The symbol for yard is yd. How to Convert YardTo convert a yard to other units of length, you can use the following formulas:
Where Yard is UsedThe yard is mainly used in the United States, the United Kingdom and some other countries that have historical ties with them. It is used for measuring length, distance, area and volume in various contexts such as:
Definition of the YardThe current definition of the yard was established by an international agreement in 1959 as exactly 0.9144 meter. This definition was based on a prototype bronze bar that was forged in 1855 as an exact copy of the British Imperial Standard Yard held by Parliament. The prototype bar was called Bronze Yard No.11 and was the official standard of length for the United States until 1892. The yard is defined as the length of the path travelled by light in vacuum during a time interval of (1/299792458) × (3600/3937) seconds. This means that one yard is equal to 3600/3937 light seconds.History of the YardThe origin of the yard measure is uncertain. It may have derived from the old English unit of tax assessment called the yardland, which was equal to 1/4 hide or about 30 acres. It may also have derived from the old English unit of surveying called the rod, which was equal to 1/4 chain or about 16 (1/2) feet. The word “yard” comes from the old English word “gerd” or “gyrd”, which meant a branch, a staff or a measuring rod. The word “yard” was first used to describe this length in William Langland’s poem Piers Plowman in the late 14th century. The first official standard for the yard was established by King Henry I of England in the early 12th century. He ordered that the yard should be equal to the length of his arm from the tip of his nose to the end of his thumb. The yard was also used in other countries, such as Scotland, Ireland, France and Spain, with slight variations in length. For example, the Scottish yard was equal to 37 inches, the Irish yard was equal to 40 inches, the French yard was equal to 39.37 inches and the Spanish yard was equal to 32.38 inches. The yard underwent several changes and refinements over the centuries, until it was finally standardized as 0.9144 meter in 1959 by an international agreement between the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
