# Micrometer per second conversions

The micrometer per second conversion selector selects the speed/velocity measurement unit to convert to starting from micrometers per second (μm/s). To make a conversion starting from a unit of speed other than micrometer per second, simply click on the "Reset" button.

## About micrometer per second

The **micrometer per second** is a unit of speed in the metric system equal to 10^{-6} meters per second (1 μm/s = 10^{-6} m/s), the derived unit of speed in the International System of Units (SI).

The micrometer per second (μm/s) is also equal to about 3.28084^{-6} feet per second (ft/s), or 10^{-4} centimeters per second (cm/s), or 10^{-3} millimeters per second (mm/s) or 3.937 × 10^{-5} inches per second (in/s).

The speed is the distance traveled by an object during a period of time. Thus, micrometers per second (micrometers/second) show how many micrometers are traveled or displaced in one second. The micrometer is a unit of length in the metric system while the second is a unit of time.
