Kolu Wynne Biol 1108 Lab Section 007 Lab 1 9/1/16 Human Arm Length to Height Correlation Experiment It has been speculated that the length of a human individual’s arm is 45% percent of their height. I hypothesized that when ten human individual’s arms are measured, the average arm length will be between 40 – 45% of the individual’s height. It has been tested that the height of a person can be estimated using their arm length with an accuracy of 90%. This was useful especially for finding the height of bedridden or wheelchair-bound patients (Journal of Orthopedics 1993). The arm length and height of ten individual humans in a Biology laboratory class were measured in using meter sticks. To find the length of each arm, the meter stick was placed in the arm pit of each individual and the arm was measured out to the end of the middle finger. To measure height, the individuals stood against a wall with their shoes off. The measurements were taken in inches and then converted to cm by multiplying the inches by 2.54. This data was

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
