That varies extremely on the age, sex, and build of a person. Also, what do you mean by lift; curl, dead lift, bench?

It really all depends on the age because your muscles are not fully developed until you are eighteen years old.

in my opinion a strong six teen year old should be able to lift about 15-17Kg more than once were as a man who works out or is strong can probably lift over 20Kg

bare in mind that this is heavily using the bicep and lightly using the shoulder


The average wight a teen can lift is probably about 5-10Kg more than once

The average wight for a man is probably about 10-18Kg

How can one upgrade a van to be able to lift wheelchairs?

One option is on the side of the van in the passenger doors. The other option is at the back of the van through the cargo doors. Second, there are two different types of wheelchair lifts depending on your needs. Single arm lifts take up less room, but have a smaller weight capacity at 600 pounds. Double arm lifts completely block the side passenger doors, but can lift more weight at 800 pounds. The third decision to make before purchasing is how you want the wheelchair lift to be installed on your van. The lift can be installed inside or underneath your van. Mounted inside the lift takes up space, but it will be easier to repair. Underneath the van, the lift takes up no space inside, but is slightly more difficult to repair.

Is more force is usually required to pull an object than to lift it?

To pull an object we have to apply a force against the force of friction. Force of friction depends on the weight of the body and the coefficient of friction. But to lift the same object we apply a force equal to its weight. Hence force to pull = mu* weight Force to lift = weight Hence force to pull / force to lift = mu If mu is greater than one, then force to pull will be greater than that to lift. If mu is less than one, definitely the force to lift will be greater than that to pull.

Are there any real flying creatures that a human could ride on while it was in flight?

No, there isn't. The flying animal with the highest weight-carrying capacity is the bald eagle, which can lift an object weighing 10lbs on average. Considering an average human weighs 150lbs, it's impossible for an eagle to lift one, let alone carry one on its back. Maybe one could possibly carry a newborn baby away though, but that is not riding it as such.

What would 1 kilogram weigh on the moon?

It's mass would be one kilogram on the moon, but It would weight about 1/6 of one kilogram.Answer:Mass and weight are not interchangeable - mass is always constant but weight varies as the local gravitational force. As a result on a equal arm balance the "weight"of a a one kilogram object would be the same as the total weight put on the other arm (which total one kilogram). On a spring balance however, where the spring is compressed or stretched by the action of gravity on the one kilogram mass to indicate "weight", the "weight" on the moon would be about 1/6 of the weight on Earth.
