to standardize all units of measurement

The metric system is a universal way of measurement making it so all scientists use the same way of measuring. It is the most widely used system around the world for measuring weight, distance and volume. Having a common system across all countries allows scientists to accurately compare their findings

There are too many measuring tools in science to list them all, but I'll list a couple.Ruler (measuringsmall distances)Pipettes & Graduated Cylinders (measuring liquids)Scales (measuring weight and mass)Anemometers (measuring wind speeds)Thermometers(measuring temperatures)In principle, you can make ALL scientific measurements with:RulerClockPendulumScaleAmmeterLight meter1)Pan Balance 2)Floating Plate3)Chemical Balance4)Alcohol Thermometre5)Hourglass

All lengths are measured in metres.

It all depends on the objects.

The basic unit of mass in the metric system is the kilogram. All the others are multiples or fractions of a kilogram.

In the metric system, meters and all derived units measure length. In the U.S. Standard system, inches, feet, yards, and miles are the units of length. The metric system is used widely in Europe and Asia. * * * * * Europe, Asis and everywhere else apart from the USA, Burma, Liberia and some minor islands. Even in the USA, the scientific community uses metric units, or, when they don't, they cause catastrophic disasters (the fate of the Mars Climate Orbiter springs to mind!)

the meter, along with all of its decade multiples and sub-multiples

The metric system uses the following units: For mass: Kilogram For length: Meter For time: Second For charge: Coulomb All of the other units are derived from these.

Centimetres, metres and kilometres are all examples of metric units for measuring lengths/distances/heights.
