Microsecond

A microsecond is an SI unit of time equal to one millionth of a second. Its symbol is μs, sometimes simplified to us. A microsecond is equal to 1⁄1,000 of a millisecond; because the next SI prefix is 1000 times larger, measurements of 10−5 and 10−4 seconds are expressed as tens or hundreds of microseconds. 1 microsecond – cycle time for frequency 1×106 hertz, the inverse unit. This corresponds to radio wavelength 300 m, as can be calculated by multiplying 1 μs by the speed of light to determine the distance travelled. 1 microsecond – the length of time of a high-speed, commercial strobe light flash. 1.8 microseconds – the amount of time subtracted from the Earth's day as a result of the 2011 Japanese earthquake. 2 microseconds – the lifetime of a muonium particle 2.68 microseconds – the amount of time subtracted from the Earth's day as a result of the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake. 3.33564095 microseconds – the time taken by light to travel one kilometer in a vacuum 5.4 microseconds – the time taken by light to travel one mile in a vacuum 8.01 microseconds – the time taken by light to travel one mile in typical single-mode fiber optic cable 10 microseconds – cycle time for frequency 100 kHz, radio wavelength 3 km 18 microseconds – net amount per year that the length of the day lengthens due to tidal acceleration.

20.8 microseconds – sampling interval for digital audio with 48,000 samples/s 22.7 microseconds – sampling interval for CD audio 38 microseconds – discrepancy in GPS satellite time per day due to relativity 50 microseconds – cycle time for highest human-audible tone 50 microseconds to read – the access latency for a modern solid state drive which holds non-volatile computer data 100 microseconds – cycle time for frequency 10 kHz 125 microseconds – sampling interval for telephone audio 164 microseconds – half-life of polonium-214 240 microseconds – half-life of copernicium-277 250 microseconds – cycle time for highest tone in telephone audio 277.8 microseconds – a fourth, used in astronomical calculations by al-Biruni and Roger Bacon in 1000 and 1267 AD, respectively. 489.67 microseconds – time for light at a 1550 nm frequency to travel 100 km in a singlemode fiber optic cable. The average human eye blink takes 350,000 microseconds; the average human finger snap takes 150,000 microseconds.
