Can anyone point me to a list of the absolute or relative weights of all human limbs? I need something like: Torso: 50% Arms: 10% each Head + neck: 10% and so on. Thanks.

??? I hope You did not cut someone to get this information
any way i wold do this like this:
Take a 2 pictures of humman (one from font, second from left or right this will give You a 3D view) and calulate proportion between limbs by using them (field?, superficies?) = height * weight * deep.

but this is only idea

Know any artists you can ask? Or maybe try the artists forum? ''Cause what you''re asking for is anatomy, which is something art students have to learn (afaik). Or maybe a friend from plastic surgery

just go to the post office and ask them if you can weigh your arms and stuff.
im sure they wont mind

the easiest way to find out is to implement your system (which im assuming is for physics), then tweak the values to your liking.

You can''t realy independantly weight separate body parts yourself because they are (hopefully) still connected to the rest of the body. An approach you could use if you want accurate data is to measure the volume of body parts by holding them under water and measuring how far the water level goes up. You''ll need someone else to look at the level while you measure your head though
