How much an adult man's femur and humerus weigh?
Hi, yesterday I'd found this question on an another website.

It seems the dry weight and fresh weight of each human bones aren't the same, for example the dry weight and fresh weight of a man's humerus and femur aren't the same and very different. What is the dry weight and fresh weight of a man's humerus and femur?

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I'm trying to think of a humerus response...

Consider

Nah!

I've dried.

Fresh out of ideas.



Ok serious-mode: The answer is related to the fresh and dry weights of a swimming pool.

Yeah and I bet my femur dried weight is ten times heavier than the combined weight of your brains. Lol Laugh out load

I've already googling several times but I still can't find the answers. Maybe the weight between the two is just the same, perhaps.

No, it couldn't possibly be the same. Think about it.Drinking Beverage

Many people say that the femur is the largest and the heaviest bone in human body but they don't say how much a femur weigh, same goes to our humerus. Idk but maybe the weight difference between the two is not very noticeable and different, maybe around several grams to several pounds. Consider
