weigh your own head?
Without using medical equipment.
You can only do it once and it requires an ax and a friend. It hurts less if you weigh your friend's head.
Trust me. I'm an engineer and we get paid to know these things.
No, there is another way... that does not include death.
Oh... Yours is likely a lot heavier than TM's as it contains a brain.
Which head ?
Water displacement is the only way I can think of.
What about lying on your side/back with your head on a scale?
What if the density of all tissues is not known
It could be done with a plank, placing a fulcrum under your neck. An assistant places weights on the plank until you balance. If your total weight is known, the weight of your head can be calculated.
You'd have to assume that the density of the head is, on average, the same as the density of the rest of the body.
