Use these **online** calculators to convert between microseconds (μs) and seconds (sec). These Time conversion calculators provide a quick and easy way to convert microseconds to seconds, or seconds to microseconds.

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

**How to convert microseconds to seconds**: Use the conversion calculator titled "Convert microseconds to seconds". Enter a value in the microseconds field and click on the "Calculate seconds" button. Your answer will appear in the sec field.

**How to convert seconds to microseconds**: Use the conversion calculator titled "Convert seconds to microseconds". Enter a value in the sec field and click on the "Calculate microseconds" button. Your answer will appear in the microseconds field.

Both microseconds (μs) and seconds (sec) are units of time. So when you convert between these units, you are performing a conversion between two units within the same measurement system.

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

The formula to convert from microseconds to seconds is:

seconds = microseconds x 0.000001

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 between microseconds (μs) and seconds (sec).

Task: Convert 1,500,000 microseconds to seconds (show work)Formula:microseconds x 0.000001 = secondsCalculations:1,500,000 microseconds x 0.000001 = 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.
