See how much of the body remains after cremation.
©Shutterstock, 2010 Cremated remains are often stored in decorative urns.
How much of the body remains after cremation depends on the size of a person's former body weight.
The solids left after cremation are about 3 percent of the former body weight, so a corpse weighing 150 pounds (68 kilograms) produces about five pounds (two kilograms), or about 200 cubic inches, of remains.
