The metric system is an international standard of measurement used by almost all countries. Scientists use the metric system throughout the world so that they can share results.

 

Common units in the metric system:

Length - mm (millimeter) cm (centimeter) m (meter) km (kilometer)

Mass - mg (milligram) g (gram) kg (kilogram)

Temp - •c (degrees celsius)

Volume - L (liter) mL (milliliter)
