If an organism averages 5 micrometers how many millimeters would it be?
A micrometer is 1/1000 of a millimeter. So anything that
measures 1 micrometer will also measure 0.001 millimeters.
Therefore, your organism will measure 0.005 millimeters on

Which metric unit would you use to measure the thickness of a nickel?
The millimeter should be sufficient. If you want greater precision, measure with micrometers. A nickel made in the USA is about 2 millimeters thick, which is equivalent to 2,000 micrometers. However, keep in mind that the precise thickness will vary from nickel to nickel, depending on the amount of wear.
