## How to convert

1 square micrometer (sq µm) = 1 square micron (sq µ). Square Micrometer (sq µm) is a unit of Area used in Metric system. Square Micron (sq µ) is a unit of Area used in Metric system.

## Square Micrometer: A Unit of Area

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

## Definition of the Square Micrometer

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

The square micrometer 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 Micrometer

The square micrometer 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 micrometer 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 micrometer 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 micrometer 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 Micrometer to Other Units

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

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

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

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

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

## Where Square Micrometer is Used

The square micrometer 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 micrometer 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.
