What part of the human body weighs the most?

After the skin, here are the five heaviest organs in the body:
  • Intestines - 7.5 pounds (4 pounds for the large intestine, 3.5 pounds for the small)
  • Lungs - 5 pounds (2.5 pounds each)
  • Liver - 3.2 pounds.
  • Brain - 3 pounds.
  • Heart - 0.6 pounds.

Likewise, how heavy is the average human head?

The human head typically weighs between 5 and 11 pounds (2.3 and 5.0 kg).

What is the largest bone in the body and where is it located?

Your femur, or thighbone, is the largest bone in your body. The head of your femur fits into your hip socket and the bottom end connects to your knee. The two bones beneath your knee that make up your shin are your tibia and fibula. Your upper and lower leg are connected by a hinge joint.

Is the skin the largest organ in the body?

Body organs aren't all internal like the brain or the heart. There's one we wear on the outside. Skin is our largest organ—adults carry some 8 pounds (3.6 kilograms) and 22 square feet (2 square meters) of it.
