According to my biomechanics instructor the leg weighs approximately W/7. Where W is the total body weight.

Google [ leg weight percent ] gives me a page on netwellness.org, which says each leg is 10 percent. But it also gives a previous answer here on WikiAnswers of 14 percent, which agrees with an answer of 15.7% on Ask an Anatomist.

Wii fit says your legs represent 40% of your body,so, counting on that to be true, depending on your weight, you'll get your specific answer with a simple math operation.For Example- if a woman weighs 100 lbs (100 x .40= 40), both of her legs weigh 40lbs and each leg would weigh (40/2= 20lbs) so 20 lbsAnswerW/7. Where W is place the total body weight.

If you were 18, you would be slightly overweight -- it is more complicated for growing teens, who can go through phases of weight gain and weight loss. The ideal weight for an adult male 5' 2" tall would be from 109 to 136 pounds, depending on your body frame (wider bodies with heavy pelvis and leg bones weigh more).

You have two bones in your lower leg. The large tibia and the smaller fibula. The fibula does not bear the weight of your body when you use your legs to walk.

All the bones in the human leg are weight bearing except the fibula.
