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

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.

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.

If you mount the scull on a desktop stand you could put a name plate on it .....like.." 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.
