Hi, I would just like to know the average density of a
Well, it's just about the same as that of water, because when you
put the average human being in water, he just barely floats in it.
Some people (me, for example) can sink or float depending on how much
air they hold in their lungs, so their density can vary from just
below to just above 1.0 g/cm^3.
Daphne, do you float in water? Some very muscular people don't. I hope that
answers your question.
