Hi.

It seems the dry weight and fresh weight of each human bones aren't the same, for example the dry weight and fresh weight of a man's humerus and femur aren't the same and very different. What is the dry weight and fresh weight of a man's humerus and femur?

Can you think of a reason why a person's bones, ripped from the living flesh, might weight more than when they are dried out? (Hint: what does 'to dry' mean?)

He's asking for the weights, not why they differ.
