micrometer

listen to the pronunciation of micrometer
English - English
An SI/MKS unit of measure, the length of one one-millionth of a meter. Symbols: µm, um, rm
A device used to measure distance very precisely but within a limited range, especially depth, thickness, and diameter
an instrument for measuring very small angles or dimensions
{n} an instrument to measure the magnitudes of objects viewed thro' telescopes and microscopes
A unit of measure There are one million micrometers in one meter
A “MY-kro’ mee-ter” is a unit of length equal to one millionth of a meter, or one micron (Not to be confused with my-KROM’-a-ter, a measuring instrument used with a telescope, microscope, or laser for fine focusing)
a micrometer is 001 millimeter
A measuring tool that is shaped and functions very much like a C-clamp (but don't use them for C-clamps!) The screw in a standard machinist's inch micrometer is precision ground and has 40 threads per inch, so one revolution changes the measuring length by 0 025" A standard, good quality micrometer that is not worn is accurate to about 0 0001"
{i} instrument for microscopic or tiny measurements
A calibrated instrument for determining the thickness of paper or the packing of the plate and blanket to top
A precision measuring instrument that is accurate to the nearest 001 of an inch or 01 mm
A precision measuring device for very small distances
an instrument for measuring very small distances. Instrument for making precise linear measurements of dimensions such as diameters, thicknesses, and lengths of solid bodies. It consists of a C-shaped frame with a movable jaw operated by a screw. The accuracy of the measurements depends on the accuracy of the screw-nut combination
(1) micron, defined as 10-6 meter; (2) instrument used to measure thickness, or caliper
The term micrometer has replaced the term micron that was used before 1967
An instrument, used with a telescope or microscope, for measuring minute distances, or the apparent diameters of objects which subtend minute angles
one millionth of a meter 1 m m = 1 meter ; 1 millimeter = 0 000039 In 1,000,000 1,000 (39 millionths of an inch)
One millionth of a meter
One-millionth of a meter, or 10-6 meter, the unit usually used for measuring microorganisms
a metric unit of length equal to one millionth of a meter
A unit of microscopic measurement convenient for describing cellular dimensions; one millionth of a meter, 10-6 meter (about 1/25,000th of an inch); its symbol is µm Replaced the now obsolete term "micron "
One-millionth (10^-6) of a meter About 40 millionths of an inch Synonymous with micron Symbol is µm
Micro; a unit of length equal to 10-6 meter
Equal 0 000001 meters (formerly micron), or 39 3701 microinches
Unit used for measurement, equivalent to 10-6 meters or one-millionth of a meter; abbreviation um
Tool used to measure the thickness of rotors
caliper for measuring small distances
Also called a micron it is the metric linear measurement used in microscopy There are 1000 microns in a millimeter If something is 1 8mm long then it can also be expressed as 1,800 microns (or micrometers) long
One-millionth (10-6) of a meter; often referred to as a micron
One millionth ( 000001) of a meter (1 micron = 1 x E-6 meters = 0 04 mils )
A unit of length One micrometer equals one millionth (10-6) of a meter (The term micron formerly used for this unit no longer is preferred )
The measurement given directly is that of the image of the object formed at the focus of the object glass
A "MY-kro’ mee-ter" is a unit of length equal to one millionth of a meter, or one micron (Not to be confused with my-KROM’-a-ter, a measuring instrument used with a telescope, microscope, or laser for fine focusing)
One millionth of one meter or 39 4 microinches
One millionth of a meter; equivalent to 39 37 micro-inches Also, see micron
micrometer caliper
Instrument for making precise linear measurements of dimensions such as diameters, thicknesses, and lengths of solid bodies. It consists of a C-shaped frame with a movable jaw operated by a screw. The accuracy of the measurements depends on the accuracy of the screw-nut combination

screw that has a thin thread and is used to tune precision devices
