What was the average height of a man 100 years ago?

Average height world wide or in a specific country? Worldwide the average height today is just below 5'8". It's hard to tell the overall average 100 years ago but honestly, it wouldn't surprise me if the average was around 5'5" give or take. In the US, the average height 100 years ago was about 5'6"-5'7" (that is if counting all the people in the 20-79 year age group like many studies do, although now they include 80+ year olds now since our life expectancy is also increasing) and today is 5'9.5". It is definitely connected to diet, primarily nutritionally (or malnutrition in the case of countries like Pakistan), often beef (high in particular proteins) is cited as being connected to this change in average heights. In Southeast Asia this average has increased, today's average in countries like the Philippines is around 5'4".

** The British Army fed their grenadiers (beefeaters) beef to help them grow, they presumed, in stature.

Note: stature may play more of a role in other factors which also affect survivability, which have little to do with diet, (such as warfare and disease) though diet is the over-riding factor in the past 100 years.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It should be noted: Grenadiers had to be 6 feet tall, and wore tall beaverskin hats to appear more intimidating, as they were the front line troops of the British Army. Beef is high in creatine, which is an essential ingredient to building strong muscles as well.

Convert 5'5 height in centimeter?

There are 12 inches in 1 foot. So, 5 x 12 is 60 inches. Together with the other inches, you have 65 inches. If 1 inch is equal to 2.5 centimeters, you can multiply the 65 inches by 2.5 centimeters to arrive at your answer: 162.5 cm.

At what height are you considered tall?

It depends on your age and gender. For a fully grown female adult anything 5'7 and above. For a fully grown male then 5'10 and above.
~Answered by unknown

Don't worry though if you are 5'7 or taller. If you're a girl. That's not tall. I think that's actually a very good height to be. Or 5'8 too. 5'7 and 5'8 aren't very tall. I think they're about average. Because guys nowadays are taller. If you aren't 5'7 or above you're way to short for them. So don't worry. Plus most models are 5'10. So no matter what don't be ashamed of your height.


If you're female, 5'8" and up, as most supermodels are between 5'9" and 5'11". The average female range is between 5'4" and 5'7".


If you're male, 6'1" and up, though 6'3" is the minimum to be considered universally tall, anywhere. In some countries, 6'1" is rather short or average for a man. The average male range is between 5'9" and 6'0".


The difference between male and female height is five inches. So if a 5'11" man was a woman, he'd be 5'6".

How tall will a girl be If she's 5'8 at 13?

Well you could just stop growing because girls usually grow until there around 14 but every one is different. For example my dad is 5'10 my grandfather is 6'5 and I was estimated at birth to grow 6'5-6'10

Is cyclohexane flat?

No: cyclohexane can exist in a few different conformations, none of which are planar. The most stable conformation is one that looks like a chair.

Other conformations include the boat and (more rarely - usually only as an intermediate) twisted boat conformations.

The reason why cyclohexane in not flat is because its ring carbons are sp3 hybridised and hence they are at their lowest energy when the angle between substituents in 109.5°. In a perfectly flat hexagon the C-C angles would be 120°, thus incurring a hypothetical 11° of ring strain.


Therefore, by "puckering" into the chair conformation, cyclohexane attains the structure of lowest potential energy.
