mark. To measure wrist circumference, wrap the measuring tape around someone’s wrist. Where the metal part of the measuring tape and the other part of the tape meet is the measurement. Neck circumference would be measure the same way as the wrist circumference. Total length from right hand to left hand is measured from the longest tip of one hand to the other with the person being measured slightly holding the measuring tape with their thumb. Volume of a cupped hand is measure by scooping the sand into one hand and then pouring the sand into a beaker or graduated cylinder. Post-Lab Questions: 1. The relationship between height and hand to hand measurements are that they are close to one another. There was one student who had the exact same measurements and everyone else was off by 1-5 centimeters. 2. The wrist circumference of males and females are not different in tremendous amounts, but a male wrist was measure to be slightly larger than a female. Although some females

have the same size wrist as some of the males, one would be able to recognize male versus female based off data. 3. The difference between the cupped hand volume of males and females varied. Some females had really high measurements for the volume of their cupped and as well as males. Others had low volume measurements along with some males. Identifying if the hand was male or female would be difficult based off the data. 4. Possible reasons for why measurements of oneself and partner measurements were different could be that it is hard to actually pinpoint the exact measurements on one’s own body. The difference is important to keep in mind because a partner would not be bias to any of the data collected. References: Merriam, George & Charles. Webster Dictionary . N.p.: G & D., 1966. Print.
