## Square Microinch: A Unit of Area

A square microinch is a unit of area measurement of a space. It is equal to the area of a square with sides of one microinch. The symbol for square microinch is μin2.

## Definition of the Square Microinch

The square microinch is defined as the area of a square that has a side length of 1 microinch, or one millionth of an inch. This is equivalent to 0.00000000000064516 square meter, or 0.00000000000155 square inch, or 0.00000000000000001076 square foot.

The square microinch is not an official unit in the International System of Units (SI), but it is sometimes used in the United States and the United Kingdom. It is also a customary unit in some other countries that use the imperial or US customary system of measurement.

## History of the Square Microinch

The square microinch was derived from the microinch, which was introduced in the 1930s as a unit of length for measuring very small distances, such as the thickness of metal films and coatings. The microinch was defined as one millionth of an inch, or 0.0254 micrometer.

The square microinch was used as a unit of area for measuring very small surfaces, such as the roughness of metal surfaces and the size of microscopic particles. It was also used as a unit of pressure, such as pounds per square microinch (psi), which is still used today for some applications.

The square microinch was gradually replaced by the metric units of area, such as the square micrometer and the square nanometer, in most countries that adopted the metric system. However, it is still used in some fields and applications, such as engineering, metrology, and microscopy.

## How to Convert Square Microinch to Other Units

To convert a square microinch to other units of area, we can use the following conversion factors:

• 1 square microinch = 0.00000000000064516 square meter
• 1 square microinch = 0.00000000064516 square millimeter
• 1 square microinch = 0.000000064516 square centimeter
• 1 square microinch = 0.00000000000155 square inch
• 1 square microinch = 0.00000000000000001076 square foot
• 1 square microinch = 0.000000000000000001196 square yard

To convert from other units to a square microinch, we can use the inverse of these conversion factors.

For example, to convert 50 square millimeters to square microinches, we can use:

50 square millimeters x (1550.0031000062 μin2 / 1 mm2) = 77500.155 μin2

## Where Square Microinch is Used

The square microinch is sometimes used in some countries for measuring very small areas, especially in engineering, metrology, and microscopy. It is also used as a unit of pressure, such as pounds per square microinch (psi).

Some examples of uses of the square microinch are:

• The average roughness of a machined metal surface is about 32 μin2.
• The standard paper size for printing documents in the United States and Canada is letter, which has an area of about 93.5 trillion μin2.
• The smallest unit of measurement for digital images is a pixel, which can have an area ranging from less than 0.00155 μin2 to more than 15.5 μin2 depending on the resolution and size of the screen.
• The largest known virus by size is the pandoravirus salinus, which has an average diameter of about 1000 nanometers (or 39.37 microinches) and an area of about 1219 μin2.
• The smallest state in the United States by area, Rhode Island, has an area of about 777 quadrillion μin2.

## Example Conversions of Square Microinch to Other Units

Here are some example conversions of a square microinch to other units:

• 1 square microinch = 0.00000000000064516 square meter
• 1 square microinch = 0.00000000064516 square millimeter

• 1 square microinch = 0.64516 square nanometer
Square microinches also can be marked as µin2.

## Square Micron: A Unit of Area

A square micron is a unit of area in the metric system. It is equal to the area of a square with sides that measure 1 micron. The symbol for square micron is μm2.

## Definition of the Square Micron

The square micron is defined as the area of a square that has a side length of 1 micron. This is equivalent to 0.000000000001 square meter, or 0.00000000155 square inch, or 0.00000000001076 square foot.

The square micron is a derived unit in the International System of Units (SI), which means that it is derived from the base unit of length, the meter. It is also a coherent unit, which means that it does not require any conversion factor when used with other SI units.

## History of the Square Micron

The square micron was introduced in France in 1795 as part of the metric system, which aimed to simplify and standardize the units of measurement. The metric system was based on the decimal system, which used powers of ten to relate different units of the same quantity.

The square micron was originally intended to be a unit of area equal to one hundredth of a square millimeter, or one ten-billionth of a square meter. However, due to a mistake in the definition of the meter at that time, the actual area of a square micron was slightly smaller than intended. This error was corrected in 1889, when the meter was redefined based on the distance between two marks on a platinum-iridium bar kept in Paris.

The square micron became widely used throughout the world for measuring very small areas, especially in science, engineering, and medicine. It is also used in some everyday applications, such as measuring cell size, dust particles, and surface roughness.

## How to Convert Square Micron to Other Units

To convert a square micron to other units of area, we can use the following conversion factors:

• 1 square micron = 0.000000000001 square meter
• 1 square micron = 0.000001 square millimeter
• 1 square micron = 0.0001 square centimeter
• 1 square micron = 0.00000000155 square inch
• 1 square micron = 0.00000000001076 square foot
• 1 square micron = 0.0000000000001196 square yard

To convert from other units to a square micron, we can use the inverse of these conversion factors.

For example, to convert 50 square millimeters to square microns, we can use:

50 square millimeters x (1000000 μm2 / 1 mm2) = 50000000 μm2

## Where Square Micron is Used

The square micron is commonly used in many countries for measuring very small areas, especially in science, engineering, and medicine. It is also used in some everyday applications, such as measuring cell size, dust particles, and surface roughness.

Some examples of uses of the square micron are:

• The average diameter of a human red blood cell is about 7 micrometers, which is equivalent to an area of about 38 μm2.
• The standard paper size for printing documents in most countries is A4, which has an area of about 62370000000 μm2.
• The smallest unit of measurement for digital images is a pixel, which can have an area ranging from less than 1 μm2 to more than 10000 μm2 depending on the resolution and size of the screen.
• The largest known virus by size is the pandoravirus salinus, which has an average diameter of about 1000 nanometers (or 1 micrometer) and an area of about 0.785 μm2.
• The smallest country in the world by area, Vatican City, has an area of about 44 trillion μm2.
