Sweetie, the U.S. isn't on the metric system.
To estimate the volume of the pot.
If the US uses the metric system then the whole world would use the Metric System. (other than Liberia and Myanmar) There would be no need for converting Imperial to Metric anymore.
the government thinks that it would be hard for older people to learn the metric system.
Most countries in the world use the metric system.Only three countries-Burma, Liberia, and the US-have not adopted the International System of Units (SI, or metric system)The metric system is much easier to use than the imperial system
when did the US start using the metric system.
None at all. The metric system is the only logical way to go.
No, the USA does not use the metric system
It is a must to go metric. US is the last country in the world that has to go this way. Scroll down to related links and read "THE UNITED STATES AND THE METRIC SYSTEM".
The reason that the US has not adopted the metric system is based on stubbornness. Even the UK has, by and large, adopted the metric system.
Personally I think the metric system is better because it is easier in my opinion. When you think about it though, pretty much every teacher in the US has taught their students through the metric system and to change it would be complicated and the parents would even be confused too.
The Congress decided this, but it is a must to go metric. US is the last country in the world that has to go this way.
metric system is for commies
both imperial and metric system is used but scientist use the metric system the most.the metric system is also called the international system also known as the SI unit.
There isn't a separate US metric system, the metric system is international and the same everywhere. So one kilometre in the U.S.A. is one kilometre.
The Metric System.
The US has not converted to the Metric System yet. We are still using the English Customary.
No. No system is more accurate. The metric system is just more easy to use.
Only the US uses the metric system. Hope it helped :D
Every civilised country in the world uses the metric system.
Because it existed long before the new-fangled Metric system was even invented, and by gosh, if it was good enough for the Pilgrims, then it ought to be good enough for us, without trying to confuse everybody with the complicated Metric system and all of its weird units. If the good lord had meant for us to use the Metric system, He would have given us ten fingers.
