    Avg density of a human body is 1010 kg/m^3
    height of a female head is 20.3 cm
    width of a female head is 14 cm
    depth of a female head is 20.3 cm

    Aprox human head as an ellipsoid. volume of ellipsoid is V= (4/3)*pi*a*b*c

    Model human head as an ellipsoid, Volume of human head = 0.024 m^3

    use the bulk density of human body as a head density
    assume head density = 1010 kg/m^3
    thus the weight of human head is 1010*0.024 = 24 kg

    actual real weight of human head ranges between 3.5 to 5.5 kg

    But I know many people whoms head weight is about 10kg

    Volume of ellipsoid is V= (4/3)*pi*a*b*c
    With a,b,c is HALF of the height/width/depth.
    Thus, given your values, volume = 2,9L.

    wow! that's a lot of research ! T Y , Deleted.

    Some interesting reading here.....

    one time I heard the head weighs about 10 lbs; but some people are more big-headed than others. hee hee

    Were you considering using a skull as a beverage bottle for Halloween? Maybe as a shrimp dip? Or perhaps a gravy bowl? I had a few in a fish tank until forensics confiscated them.


    Can you hear my roaring laugh?
    I thought maybe xog was buying a hat for a gift. Whooo nose.

    If you mount the scull on a desktop stand you could put a name plate on it" Stacey Dean Rambold....convicted raper." As a note of caution for boys seeking to date your daughter. Of course a collection of similar relicks and you could charge admission.
