The metric system was developed by a group of French scientists after the conclusion of the French Revolution, and was based on ideas developed during the 17th century. As of 2015, only a handful of countries do not use the metric system, such as the United States and Liberia.

Printable ring gauges are used to measure and identify a person's ring size. To identify ring size, a current ring is matched to the appropriate circle on the ring gauge. Alternatively, a string is measured around the intended finger and compared against the ring gauge.

A metric scale is a form of measurement used in the metric system. The metric system is the world standard for measurement and is made of three basic units: the meter, gram and liter. The meter measures length, the gram measures mass and the liter measures volume.

A metric chart is a graphical representation listing metric units, and it shows how to convert them into equivalent units within the metric system or within other standard measurement systems. For example, many metric charts list U.S. customary units alongside metric units for ease of converting one

An easy way to remember metric conversions is by remembering that "King Henry Doesn't Understand Doing Conversions of Metric." Here K, H, D, U, D, C and M stand for kilo, hecto, deka, unit, deci, centi and milli, respectively, giving values from the biggest to the smallest.

Modern cars use electric temperature gauges to keep track of radiator and engine temperature. They operate like a voltmeter, with a special hairpin-like assembly opening and closing to create an electrical circuit. Old cars used a Bourdon Tube, which is a mechanical temperature gauge.
