Correlation between ring finger length and athletic abilityFeatured science projectScience project video

Observation

It was observed that most of the athletic girls had longer ring fingers. When the index and ring fingers of the non-athletic girls were measured, it was observed that most of them had ring and index fingers of the same length. It was also found that the finger length ratio of both hands of almost all 20 girls was the same.
 

Condition Comparing index and ring finger lengths among athletic and non-athletic girls
Left –longer index Left- longer ring Left – equal Right – longer index Right- longer ring Right -equal
Athletic 3 6 1 3 5 2
Non-athletic 1 3 6 1 2 7

The above results were then plotted onto a graph, as shown below.
