Metric as in the METRIC SYSTEM
The Metric or S.I. system.
It's called the Metric System.
Most of the (civilized) world. The US is the only significant non-conformer.The metric system is used in all countries except the United States, Burma and Libya.Metric system is used for scientists worldwide.The metric system is used everywhere. However it is not commonly used in the US
Meters are commonly used inside the metric system, while they're equivalent in the Imperial (US) system is called feet.
The "L" is in the metric system for liter, which is most commonly used with liquids.
Almost everywhere, by almost everybody.
Megameters; but this is not commonly used.
measuring the volume of the metric system the bushel scale and is used by units of measurement that litters. ml. cubic inch. cubic meters. Decimeter cubic meters. It is.
Most commonly Imperial and Metric, which is generally used in most all countries. But there is also many systems of measurement that tie in with science and physics which included, but are not limited to:the ancient systemthe medieval systemthe english systemthe metric systemthe international system
There is basically ONE metric system currently used worldwide. It is called the SI. All countries that use "the metric system" are really using the SI. Other metric systems were used in the past, but they are not commonly used in any country.
The metric system uses kilograms, seconds and meters. Meters is a measurement typically used only in the metric system.Some units in the metric system are meters, centimeters, millimeters, and liters.
Uh, first it's much not munch. Second, a meter is part of a measuring system called the Metric System. It includes: Millimeters, centimeters, decimeters, meters, decameters, hectometers, and kilometers. The meter is in the center of the system. Just as a foot is the most commonly used distance in the American system, the meter is the most commonly used in the Metric System. And thirdly, a meter is equal to 1.0936 yards.
The metric system (SI, to be precise) is used everywhere in the scientific community, and most of the units are used in practice in most countries of the world.
the metric system
Most of the world uses the metric system for measurement. The main units used outside of the U.S.A. is the metric system or SI (System Internationale).
The system of measurement commonly used in most of the world is the SI or Metric system. Aside from that one, there are various others that are used in small areas by relatively few people. One of those is the "English" system, used in Burma, Liberia, and the USA.
The most commonly used metric units for length are Millimetres, Centimetres, Metres and Kilometres.
It is found throughout the world (everywhere other than the US) and is most commonly used in weight measurements. For example, grams, milligrams, Kilograms. Centuries and decades are based on the metric system as well.
SI, the abbreviation for Systeme International (French), refers to the International System of Weights and Measures and is commonly referred to as the metric system. It includes the standard units of measurement used in most countries except the U.S.
The metric system is used all over the world.
To confuse Americans.
