Depends on the bone. Heavy bones like the femur are extremely resistant to breaking, as is the skull. Smaller bones tend to be jointed in a way that lets them flex away from breaking forces. To actually put a number to this belongs more in the realm of the clinical laboratory, as the answer is always going to be somewhat abstract. I can take a section of femur (in the lab), deliver measured vertical force until it fractures, and all I've discovered is what would happen to someone who was attentive enough to fall in an exact vertical plane, and remain in that position as impact settled in. Not real-world at all. That said, some bones bear internal pressures of up to a ton or more. Spines bear a huge amount of shearing stress and concentrated/angualr weight.

Thanks for the feedback!
The number of pounds of bone in a human body depends on the age and sex of the individual. Children's bones weigh less than adults.
It depends on how big your skull is. IT takes 15-16 pounds of pressure per square inch.
15 PSI My Good Sir.
I have heard that the femur bone can take up to 1100 pounds per square inch of pressure before breaking.
This can vary depending on the age and size of the human. A baby or child's hand will take much less weight to break it than an adult hand would.
Bout 20 pounds of steel bar
at least at a 15 mph speed
it depends on the calcium and fat index of your body. also the velocity of the object. 70 pounds can probably do it.
It takes 15 psi (pounds per square inch) to break both, human neck and skull.
I'll do it for £50
1. I would be careful if I were you.
It depends how hard you pound. The harder you pound, the fewer times you have to do it before the femur breaks. And it also depends on how strong the femur is, and what area y…ou spread the pound over. Different peoples femurs have different strengths.
It depends on the ticckness and grade of the aluminum and the object being used. For example, T6 grade aluminum is almost 10 times as strong as the aluminum used in aluminum f…oil.
