This answer was rated:


Next, read up on how scientists have addressed the problem of measuring just about anything—visible or invisible—starting with the 200+ year history of the International System of Units (SI) and moving on to reading about how SI (more specifically, the metric system) is used today in everyday life: Metric System.

As you read, you'll discover that the United States has been the slowest country in the world to adopt SI and move to metric measurements. Right now, U.S. scientists and medical doctors use metric, but many other people do not. Do some research into why the United States has been so slow to adopt metric measurements. What problems does this cause for the United States? What benefits might it bring the United States? How might you resolve the gap between the United States' measurement system and that of the rest of the world?

As always, be sure to provide appropriate citations, references, and links to any information you use in this discussion.
