The United States customary system (also called American system or, sometimes, "English units") is the most commonly used system of measurement in the United States.
The standard for science the world over is the metric system, and most commonly the mks system of units. This stands for meter, kilogram, seconds. Different sub-fields may use slightly tweeked units like the cgs system which stands for centimeter, gram, seconds but these are still metric units.

They are basically imperial units which were developed in Britain, though some of their origins are Roman and Saxon.
The unit for mass that is most commonly associated with the metric system is the kilogram. Strictly speaking, "weight", which is a type of force, is measured in Newtons.
The metric system is most widely used, used in every country with the exception of America and Belize.
The unit of measurement that is used the most in science and engineering around the world is the meter and variations of the meter. Variations include the centimeter and millimeter.
The SI, or International System (System Internationale), also known as the KMS system because it consists of the following: for mass: kg for length: m for time: s
Most countries use the metric system.
Scientists use the metric or SI units of measurement.
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.
Gr can stand for either grain or gross, but is most commonly used as gram.
