How strong is the femur?
The femur is the strongest and thickest bone in the body. It can take about 600 LBS of vertical force before it breaks. That pretty much means that if you set it up so it was horizontal, with a space in between the things holding it up, and put 600 pounds on it, it would snap. That's strong.

Answer . Between your knee and hip.. It is also the longest bone in you body.. By Jens Radda It is the top bone in the leg. femurs are the biggest bones in the body whi…ch are in your leg and also in Egypt they needed big femurs to make pyramids and stuff . A BONE IN THE BODY
The femur, which is part of the upper thigh, is the largest bone in the human body. It performs various functions that help maintain mobility.
You must mean "femur," which is "the longest and thickest bone of the human skeleton; extends from the pelvis to the knee" (Word Web); apparently some folks choose to spell it… "femure" but that's not in the dictionary.
the femur is the thighbone & there is only 1 per thigh. the lower leg has 2 bones: the tibia & the fibula. answer your looking for is right or left depending on the view of th…e femur.
No in fact your sternum is rather weak and easily broken. Usually resulting in death.. No in fact your sternum is rather weak and easily broken. Usually resulting in death.
The femur is the largest bone in the body; it's your "thigh bone", above the knee attaching to the hip.
No, that is actually a common mistake people make. You never really mix it up unless your are actually researching the human body. The femur is actually super narrow, that's w…hat they get mixed up.
You stand on it.
You'd fall over, or at least have to hop. The femur is the bone in your upper leg, otherwise known as the thigh bone. The femur is the largest and strongest bone in the human …body. If a femur is damaged, by trauma or disease, a femur prosthesis (artifical femur bone) can be implanted.
Yes the femur can be considered an organ. Think of it this way, the definition of a tissue is a group of functionally related cells and their extracellular material (or interc…ellular products) which in turn together have a common function. The definition of an organ is a group of different tissues which together have a common function. And of course an organ system is many different organs working together for a common function (to support the organism) Bone tissue, or osseous tissue is the major component of the skeletal system. However, its not the only tissue that resides within the skeletal system. Although the femur is primarily composed of bone tissue, it is not the only tissue type found within it. For example, periosteum (dense irregular connective tissue) and also the medullary canal (filled with adipose, again, spongy or cancellous bone (found mainly in the epiphysis sections) contains myeloid connective tissue. Coming back to the definition stated above, yes the femur is composed of many different tissues, which have a common function. The skeletal system is made up of all the bones in the body. This is because why? thinking again back to the above definition, an organ system is made of different organs which have a common function, and those different organs are different bones. So yes, the femur can be considered an organ :)
Yes. But it is a vestigial structure, meaning the ancestors needed them, but they are useless to the current creature.
The femur lies between the hip and the knee. It is the only bone in the upper leg.
because plowers reffer to it as a baked beans toe.
