### Can humans levitate? – Math/Numbers Magic Tricks For Kids Onpaper

Yes, humans can levitate. The human body in motion is the result of a combination of elasticity, tension, and gravity. Most of the body’s mass resides within the ribs, the pelvis and the legs, whereas the weight of the head and neck is distributed mostly over the upper extremities. As a result, it follows that the human body generates its own force from the combined elasticity, tension and gravity forces that surround and influence each body part.

How do you do it?

The force on a fixed body is proportional to the pressure and the resistance to movement. In other words, the more resistance a body has to movement, the more force it can generate. The forces generated by your legs are proportional both to the weight of the legs and the legs themselves, which give the legs a total force output of about 1.5 times the weight of your body. The resistance of your body to change in orientation is also proportional, making a total force of about 0.3 times your body weight (4)

The force on a moving body is proportional to the applied force and the velocity of the body. The applied force is given by: V = T / T2

As you climb, your body mass (2) will continue to increase as you accelerate towards the surface. If you stop moving, it will stop producing force (5)
