How can you break a bone?
Im not going to do it I just wanna know what causes a bone to break?
Additional Details
Also how much weight would it take?

Alexis T
Well if you break you femur then you would have to have almost 2 tons of pressure on it. That's why its vere rare to break your femur! any other bone you jus need to land on it the wrong way or hit it with or against something! duh stupid its common sense!

take your arm and bash it in half against the wall. Take a hammer start hitting it will shoatter the bone then.

Mike H
u grab a blunt object and smash the **** out of it

Maggie Steele
Bones are fragile and they can break very easily, but it depends on what bone you are talking about. To break an arm it might need lots of force, but it will hurt! Maybe you should jump off a building and find out, you will see how easy it is.

just some guy
it really doesn't take much. if the right force is applied.

I think its from to much pressure being put on one particular spot on the bone, the bone then gives to the pressure and snaps causing a break.

i broke my leg when i was five from my cousin and i on a trampoline and him jumping on on my leg and im now 13 and he was like 130 pounds but it wouldnt take that much weight

It's Not Me It's You!
Falling a certain way or angle will definitely do it.

The amount of weight would depend on the person and also the bone density. If they don't drink milk or consume calcium through vitamins, bone density will be lower. Also, drinking cola lowers calcium in bones because of the phosphates in the drink.

closed account
It depends on the bone that breaks. For instance it only took my body weight to break my toe. The cat startled me and my toe was the only support on the step and I put all my weight on it and it bend in half to the side... not to mention I then feel down the steps... :-D now I think about it it's kind of funny. Stupid cat!

I know someone broke his arm in the snow when it got ran over by a sledge.

And I cracked my head [close enough to breaking a bone?] open a little when I fell on a brick fireplace aged 7.

It would take a lot of weight to break a human bone. It wouldn't take much FORCE to do it, however. For example, two grown men sitting on some one's arm probably wouldn't break it. If the two grown men were to HOP onto someone's arm, they'd break it like a twig.

Force = mass x acceleration
Mass alone may have trouble breaking a bone. Add a little acceleration (some form of progressive motion) to that and the mass (which correlates to gravity -----> weight) gets multiplied.

a lot of outside presure causes it 2 snap.

omg dont remind me. it depends which bone

Know It All Guy
Falling of a cliff. Any weight.

Js King
depends on how strong it is...for example it is influeced by diet such as vitamin D and calcium. the more of these minerals u have in ur diet the stronger ur bones tend to b.

jump off a roof and try landing on your feet. Hit yourself with a hammer? just some random ideas. jump off a swing.

Break A Leg Finding Out The Answer!!

Bones break due to an excess of stress placed on them. Some bones break easier than others, and it also depends on how strong your bones are. So in answer to your question there are so many variables that it is almost impossible to tell what will cause a bone to break and what will not. I have known people who have fallen from a height and walked away with just bruises and my daughter came down an inflatable pyramid with her cousin and managed to break her arm.
