What is micrometer per second?

The micrometre per second (micrometer per second) is a unit of speed in the metric system equal to 10-6 meters per second (1 μm/s = 10-6 m/s), the derived unit of speed in the International System of Units (SI). It is also equal to about 3.28084-6 feet per second (ft/s), or 10-4 centimeters per second (cm/s), or 10-3 millimeters per second (mm/s) or 3.937x10-5 inches per second (in/s).

The speed is the distance traveled by an object during a period of time. Thus, micrometers per second (micrometers/second) show how many micrometers are traveled or displaced in one second. The micrometer is a unit of length in the metric system while the second is a unit of time.
