Body Density Body Density = WA/[(WA-WW)/c.f. - LV] WA = Weight in air (kg) WW = Weight in water (kg) c.f. = Water correction factor (=1 at 39.2 deg F as one-gram of water occupies exactly one cm^3 at this temperature, =.997 at 76-78 deg F) LV = Residual Lung Volume (liters)
Proportion of Fat Tissue D = Body Density (gm/cm^3) A = Proportion of lean body tissue B = Proportion of fat tissue(A + B =1) a = Density of lean body tissue (gm/cm^3) b = Density of fat tissue (gm/cm^3)
Proportion of Fat Tissue D = 1/[(A/a) + (B/b)] B = (1/D)*[a*b/(a-b)]-[b/(a-b)]
Estimates a =1.10 gm/cm^3 and b =0.90 gm/cm^3 Percentage of Body Fat = 495 /D - 450 Siri’s Equation

The Best Predictor For Simple Regression Using Excel Simple Regression Abdomen Circumference
The Best Three Predictor Models For Multiple Regression Top Three: 1.Abdomen Circumference, Wrist Circumference, Weight (R^2 =.728) 2.Weight, Abdomen Circumference, Neck Circumference (R^2 =.724) 3.Abdomen Circumference, Weight, Height (R^2 =.721)
Best Multiple Predictor Equation And The Average Percent Difference From The Given Data Average Difference = 3.58 body fat = abdomen (.975) – weight (.114) – wrist (1.245) – 27.930
Body Fat Demonstration Using the best model from our Regression Analysis body fat = abdomen (.975) – weight (.114) – wrist (1.245) – 27.93
The Best 3 Predictors are the Abdomen Weight Wrist Measuring the Predictors Abdomen and Wrist are measured in Centimeters (cm) Weight is measured in pounds
Measuring the Abdomen Make sure that the heels are together before applying the tapeline. Then measure approximately 3” below the waistline. Measure the abdomen circumference (cm).
Measuring the Weight Weight should be taken with an accurate weighing scale. Record the persons weight in pounds.
Measuring the Wrist Measurement should be taken between hand and wrist bone. Measure the wrist circumference (cm).
Calculating the Body Fat % Body fat = A (.975) – W (.114) – P(1.245) – 27.93 A = abdomen circumference (cm) P = wrist circumference (cm) W = weight (lbs)
