Force Exerted by the Jaws.
From "Popular Hcience News."
Dr. V. G. Black has recently made
experiments upon the force exerted by
the human jaws In chewing food, and
also the greatest force which the jaws
are capable of exerting.
By means of a spring instrument
provided with a registering device, he
took records of about 150 "bites" of
different persons. Of these, fifty have
been preserved as characteristic of the
ordinary man, woman, and child. The
smallest pressure recorded was 30
pounds, by a little girl seven years old.
This was with the incisors. Using her
molars, the same child exerted a force
of 65 pounds. The highest record was
made by a physician of thirty-five.
The Instrument used only registered
270 pounds, and he simply closed it
togethei without apparent effort.
There was no method of determining
how far above 270 pounds he could
have gone. This test was made with
the n olars. Several persons exceeded
a force of 100 pounds with the incisors
and 200 with the molars. The physi
cal condition of the persons experi
mented upon seemed to have little
bearing upon the result. Dr. Black is
of the opinion that the condition of the
peridental membranes is the control
ling factor, rather than muscular
Dr. Black found that, in the habitual
chewing of food, much more force is
exerted than is necessary. In chewing
a piece of beefsteak, the crushing point
of which was front 40 to 45 pounds,
from 60 to 80 pounds stress was actual
ly employed at each' thrust of the
teeth. The principal articles of food
tested had crushing points as follows;
Steak, 40 to 45 pounds; mutton chop9,
35 to 40 noutuls; broiled ham, 45 to 60
pounds; roast beef, 45 to 00 pounds;
pork chops, 20 to 25 pounds, and the
choicest parts of cold boiled beef
tongue, 3 to 5 pounds. The tougher
parts of beef and mutton required a
crushing force of 90 pounds in some
