Watson et al developed equations for estimating the total body water in adults based on gender, age, height and weight.
total body water in liters for males =
= (-0.09516 * (age in years)) + (0.1074 * (height in cm)) + (0.3362 * (weight in kilograms)) + 2.447
total body water in liters for females =
= (0.1069 * (height in cm)) + (0.2466 * (weight in kilograms)) - 2.097
