Microns or Micrometres of Mercury is a very small pressure unit which is dervied from the pressure due to gravity that is generated by a 1 micrometer (1/1000mm) column of liquid mercury. 1 Micron of Mercury of Mercury at zero degrees Celsius equals 0.133322 Pascals.
The main use for micrometers of mercury is to measure high vacuum.
The micron of Hg pressure unit is treated as being equal to 1 millitorr, however although the mtorr is a fixed value, the mercury measurement can vary slightly around the world depending what is assumed for the density of mercury and local gravity.

Please note that the conversion factors above are accurate to 6 significant figures.
Pressure = Force / Area
Force = Mass x Acceleration
Mass = Density x Volume
Volume = Area x Height
Acceleration = Distance / (Second x Second)
Mass: Kilogram (kg)
Distance: Metre (m)
Time: Second (s)
Force: Newton (N)
Pressure: Pascal (Pa)
Density = Mercury Density at 0degC = 13595.1 kg/m³
Area = 1 m²
Height = 1 µm = 0.000001 m
Acceleration = Standard Gravity = 9.80665 m/s²
1 µHg Mass = 13595.1 kg/m³ x 1 m² x 0.000001 m = 0.0135951 kg
1 µHg Force = 0.0135951 kg x 9.80665 m/s² = 0.1333223874 N
1 µHg Pressure = 0.1333223874 N / 1 m² = 0.1333223874 Pa
