U.S. and the Metric SystemThe U.S. does not use the metric system because they use the older Imperial system invented by the Romans. The British also used the same measurement system, but now use the metric system. Most other countries have adopted the metric system as well. +++ American scientists and engineers use it where necessary for international work.
