Convert 1.5 Millimeters to Inches (mm to in) with our conversion calculator.

1.5 Millimeters to Inches equals 0.0591 in.

To calculate 1.5 mm to inches, you need to know the basic conversion factor between millimeters and inches. 1 inch is defined as exactly 25.4 millimeters. Therefore, to convert millimeters to inches, you can use the formula: inches = millimeters / 25.4.

Given this, converting 1.5 mm to inches involves taking the value of 1.5 and dividing it by 25.4. When you carry out this calculation, 1.5 mm equals approximately 0.0591 inches. This conversion essentially scales down the metric measurement (millimeters) into the imperial units (inches) by applying the standardized relationship that the metric and the imperial systems share for these units of length. This conversion is particularly useful in contexts where precision is necessary, such as engineering, manufacturing, and various technical fields where both metric and imperial systems are used interchangeably.

Here are 7 items that are approximately 1.5 mm in length:

  1. The thickness of a standard #1 paperclip wire.

    • Paperclips are usually made from wire of varying thicknesses, with #1 being a common size.
  2. The diameter of a mechanical pencil lead (medium thickness).

    • Mechanical pencil leads come in various thicknesses, with 1.5 mm being suitable for medium to heavy handwriting without breaking easily.
  3. The width of a small sesame seed.

    • Sesame seeds are commonly used in baking and cooking for their nutty flavor; their size can be around 1.5 mm wide.
  4. The thickness of a standard credit card's magnetic stripe.

    • Credit cards follow international standards, including the dimensions of the magnetic stripe.
  5. A typical smartphone screen protector's thickness.

    • Many screen protectors aim to provide durability without adding bulk, usually not exceeding 1.5 mm.
  6. The lead length of a tiny surface-mount electronic component.

    • Electronic components such as resistors or capacitors in surface-mount technology (SMT) may have lead lengths around this size for soldering to circuit boards.
  7. Diameter of the smallest commonly used drill bit for precision tasks.

    • Precision drill bits used in hobbies or electronics can be as small as 1.5 mm in diameter for delicate drilling operations.
