Online calculators to convert microseconds to seconds (μs to sec) and seconds to microseconds (sec to μs) with formulas, examples, and tables. Our conversions provide a quick and easy way to convert between Time units.

Enter your value in one of the conversion calculators below to **convert microseconds to seconds ** or **convert seconds to microseconds**.

* If the result of your conversion is 0, try increasing the "Decimals".

The following is a list of definitions relating to conversions between microseconds and seconds.

A microsecond is a unit of time. The symbol for microsecond is μs. There are 1,000,000 microseconds in a second.

A second is a unit of time. The symbol for second is sec or s. There are 0.000001 seconds in a microsecond.

Let's take a closer look at the conversion formulas so that you can do these conversions yourself with a calculator or with an old-fashioned pencil and paper.

The formula to convert from microseconds to seconds is:

seconds = microseconds ÷ 1,000,000

The formula to convert from seconds to microseconds is:

microseconds = seconds x 1,000,000

Next, let's look at some examples showing the work and calculations that are involved in converting from microseconds to seconds (μs to sec) or converting from seconds to microseconds (sec to μs).

Task: Convert 1,500,000 microseconds to seconds (show work)Formula:microseconds ÷ 1,000,000 = secondsCalculations:1,500,000 microseconds ÷ 1,000,000 = 1.5 secondsResult:1,500,000 microseconds is equal to 1.5 seconds

Task: Convert 12 seconds to microseconds (show work)Formula:seconds x 1,000,000 = microsecondsCalculations:12 seconds x 1,000,000 = 12,000,000 microsecondsResult:12 seconds is equal to 12,000,000 microseconds

For quick reference purposes, below are conversion tables that you can use to convert from microseconds to seconds, and seconds to microseconds.
