#### Transcript of Copy of Metric in our World Katya Solyst R4 Mrs Mitchell

Where and Where was the metric system first used? Designed during the French Revolution of the 1790's, the metric system brought order out of the conflicting and confusing traditional systems of weights and measures then being used in Europe. http://www.unc.edu/~rowlett/units/metric.html Name three countries that do not use the metric system? ■Liberia
■Myanmar
■United States http://www.joeydevilla.com/2008/08/13/countries-that-dont-use-the-metric-system/ list 5 ways the US uses the metric system in everyday activities and industry ? http://highered.mcgraw-hill.com/sites/0070294267/student_view0/the_metric_system.html Why can't US companies make non metric products to sell here and metric products to sell to other countries?
The basic unit of length
The basic unit of volume
The basic unit of mass
The basic unit of temperature
measurements involving pounds, inches, and so on. What are two advantages of the metric system over the inch-pound system or customary system? Because it's so much simpler and easier to use.
The metric system is an improvement over the English system in three major points:
One unit of measurement for each physical quantity. No matter from which other quantities of the SI system derived, yields always the same unit.
Scalability by prefixes - combinations of prefix and unit make for a plethora of convenient combined units.
Decimal system - fractions are expressed in decimal notation. Not only makes this the notation unique, exhaustive and intuitively comparable, but also allows unit conversion without doing math - simply by shifts of the decimal point http://www.metric4us.com/why.html They sure can.
But making smaller numbers of two versions of a product costs more than making a bigger number of one version of a product, so they'd prefer not to.
If the customers are willing to pay the extra there's no problem. http://askville.amazon.com/companies-make-metric-porducts-sell-products-countries/AnswerViewer.do?requestId=84362708 Metric Mass Metric Volume Metric Length Katya Solyst Metric in our world R4 Mrs Mitchell 2 cinnamon sticks
