What does the Micro Symbol Mean?

Greek letters are used by engineers, mathematicians, scientists, and the public to describe constants or factors. The Greek alphabet is distinguished from our regular alphabet since its symbols and letters are used across a variety of scientific disciplines. Furthermore, they are less likely to be confused with other letters. An example is the Greek letter μ. 


The Greek letter μ is used to denote the micro symbol. It is used as a prefix to indicate one-millionth or 10−6. In the absence of a Greek symbol, the prefix mc may also be used. 100 micrograms, for instance, can be expressed as either 100 mcg or 100 μg.


Other representations of micro (μ) are the following:

Ramanujan –Soldner constant μ ≈ 1.45136…
Population Mean μ = (Σ Xi ) / N
Rotor Advance Factor μ = V∞/Ωr
Amplification Factor Ratio of the change in anode voltage ΔVa to the change in grid voltage ΔVg, with anode current held constant.
Mu Opiate Receptor Treatment for pain.
Mutation Rate Frequency of new mutations in a single gene or organism over a period of time.
