Congratulations Wolfram Alpha
I have been trying to find the volume of blood in the average human male and female. The database is unable to understand the question. Is there any other way of getting this information from the database?

Searching for "male human" or "female human" will give you body information which I presume is the average for the respective gender.

http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=male+human
http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=female+human

Specifying a specific age/age group, weight and height will give you more specific details. For example, my own data:

http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=age+17%2C+weight+70kg%2C+height+185cm%2C+male

Alpha appears to only show some content in overviews, but it can't recognize your question if you ask for a certain kind of data specifically, it appears.

In an average healthy adult, the volume of blood is about one-eleventh of the body weight. Most sources state the volume of blood in an average human adult, who is between 150 to 160 pounds, as between 4.7 and 5 liters, although the more recent sources state the volume of blood in an average adult as 4.7 liters. Sources state that an 80-pound child had about half that amount, and an 8-pound infant has about 8.5 ounces. People who live at high altitudes, where the air contains less oxygen, may have up to 1.9 liters more blood than people who live in low altitude regions. The extra blood delivers additional oxygen to body cells. The heart pumps all the blood in the body each minute when the body is at rest.

In the body, blood is the fluid transport nutrients and oxygen to every cell in the body. Amount of blood in the circulatory system is affected by the regulation of the liquid in the capillary membrane and the internal mechanism of the exchange of hormones and affect renal excretion of body fluids by the reflex.
