Forensic Scientists are able to estimate the height of a person using certain long bones. These bones include the radius, humerus, femur, and tibia. There have been calculations developed to determine height using these bones. The formulas are: Female height estimation (cm) H = femur length x 2.21 + 61.41 H = tibia length x 2.53 + 72.57 H = humerus length x 3.14 + 64.97 H = radius length x 3.87 + 73.50 Male height estimation (cm) H = femur length x 2.23 + 69.08 H = tibia length x 2.39 +81.68 H = humerus length x 2.97 + 73.57 H = radius length x 3.65 + 80.40 1.Human remains were found near the banks of a local river. The body had undergone major decay so that only the skeleton remained. It was found that the humerus was 34.9 centimeters.
