Should the US adopt the metric system of measurement soon? Why or why not?
I live in the US, but I believe that the metric system sounds more reasonable. Here’s why. 1 kilometer=1000 meters 1 kilogram=1000 grams 1 centimeter=10 millimeters and so on If you compare to the English system it can sometimes a bit confusing. 1 kilo= 2.2 lbs. 1 mile= 1.61 kilometers 1 gallon= 3.7 liters and so on. By comparing the math skills, there is a never ending number on comparing the English System and the Metric System. Yet I’m suprised that scientists use the Metric system all over the world, even us too.
