Question
30 out of 54
 

Height of the body can be deduced from the length of humerus by following equation: (LQ)



A Humerus is 10 percent of height

B Humerus length is 50 percent of height

C Humerus length is 20 percent of height

D Humerus length is 2 percent of height

Ans. C

Humerus length is 20 percent of height
(Height or Stature is determined in a dismembered body by:

a. Length from the tip of middle finger to the tip of opposite middle finger when arms are fully extended.

b. Twice the length of one arm + 30 cm for two clavicles + 4 cm for the sternum.

c. Humerus length = 1/5th of height.

d. The length from the vertex to the Symphysis pubis is half of the total length.

e. The length from the sternal notch to Symphysis pubis x 3.3.

f. The length of forearm measured from tip of middle finger is = 5/19 of total length.

g. The height of head measured by the vertical distance from the top of the head (vertex) to the tip chin = 1/8 of the total length.

h. The length of Vertebral Column = 34/100 of total length. To the length of entire skeleton add 2.5 – 4 cm for thickness of the soft parts.)
