Total weight of the 206 bones in the body is around 15% of the total body weight .

Single largest body part in human body is the Skin . Most adults' skin weighs in at 20 pounds or more. It constitutes around 13 % of the total body weight. Of course, the weight of skin varies depending on its owner, with skinnier people 's skin weighing less than their heavier brethren. If you were to tear off and spread out the average adult's skin, it would cover approximately 22 square feet (2 square meters).

After the skin, here are the five heaviest organs in the body:
Total Intestine weight 7.5 lbs .
Lungs – 5lbs ( both left & right )
Liver – 3. 2
Brain 3lbs
Heart – 0.6lbs

Nail growth – 0.1 mm / day – test this when the election ink is marked- takes around 100 120 days to disappear depending on the age , roughly 1 CM. (10MM) . Just now the mark has come to the tip after voting on April 18th . more
