How to convert seconds to microseconds (s to µs)
The formula for converting seconds to microseconds is: µs = s × 1000000. To calculate the second value in microseconds first substitute the second value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 second in microseconds we follow these steps:
µs = s × 1000000
µ1 = s × 1000000
µs = 1000000
In other words, 1 second is equal to 1000000 microseconds.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 2 seconds to microseconds is:
- Understand the conversion formula: µs = s × 1000000
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 2 for s so the formula becomes: µ2 = s × 1000000
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 2 × 1000000 = 2000000 µs
In summary, 2 seconds is equal to 2000000 microseconds.
Converting microseconds to seconds
In order to convert the other way around i.e. microseconds to seconds, you would use the following formula: s = µs ÷ 1e+6. To convert microseconds to seconds first substitute the microsecond value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 microsecond in seconds we follow these steps:
s = µs ÷ 1e+6
s = 1 ÷ 1e+6
s = 0.000001
Or in other words, 1 microsecond is equal to 0.000001 seconds.
