# I am 84 kilos (185 lbs); how many liters am I?

Asked by rebbel (23647) May 7th, 2014

Or, is there such a thing as the specific weight/unit weight of a human?
If not, would it be possible to calculate it?

Since the average human density is almost equal to that of water, your volume is almost exactly 84 litres.

1 kilogram of human flesh equals 1 liter so as @ragingloli said 84 liters. You would fit nicely in a medium sized suitcase.

@rebbel An incalculable bundle of fun! How lovely to see you.

Like @ragingloli and @Crazydawg said – 84 liters. You just barely float in water so your density is the same as water: 1 gm/cc or 1kg/liter

A very good size for a guy from the Netherlands. Great to see you again!

I float easily in water, so I would figure a liter or two above 84. But women are more buoyant than men, and some races are more buoyant than others, so your results my vary.

It depends on how much body fat you are carrying. This is exactly how they can calculate your BMI by putting you in a tub of water.

Are you including the beard in your calculations? (Great to see you again. Stay for tea, please).

The “floating in water” one did it for me; how logical.
Special thank you to the sweet ladies that greeted/welcomed me!
