US & Imperial units are mostly used in the USA and a few other countries. For the most part, US units represent the same quantity as Imperial units. However there are differences when it comes to some units of volume and weight, such as gallons, pints, fluid ounces, hundredweight and tonnes, which all have different values for use in the USA and the UK.
Metric units are more widely used internationally, particularly in European countries where the metric system originated. It is also used by the scientific community, and SI units (International System of Units) on which all measurement standards are based and controlled, is based on the metric unit system.
In some countries such as the UK they are used alongside the metric unit system, and the weighting of usage of each units varies depending on the measurand and the application e.g. mph (mile per hour) which is an imperial unit of speed is predominantly used instead of the metric kph (kilometres per hour), whereas metric units cc (cubic centimetres) and L (litres) are always used instead of the imperial unit cu in (cubic inches).
