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 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
