Abstract

The topic of the experiment is the effect of mass of an arrow on bow efficiency. The research question is, “will the efficiency of a bow be affected by mass of an arrow?” Previous work has failed to address accurately the relationship between mass and efficiency. The research was conducted at a local indoor archery range with the help of the staff. The research was conducted by running experiments using one bow and multiple arrows of different masses. The key impact of this research is to help archers decide what mass arrows to use for shooting.
