    Arrow speed / bow # vs arrow weight

    How fast will a 44# bow be able to push a 400grain arrow?

    Is there a calculator somewhere out there?

    will there not be a sh!t load of variables you dont know that could affect the result? ... like the limb efficiency, bracing height, string composition, arrow material, arrow wind resistance and prob a lot more!
    Shoot and die. Don't shoot ... also die!

    You're probably right.

    Can you rearrange this "Energy = half x mass x velocity squared" to get an answer "at a constant temperature in a controlled environment etc"?

    I've just copied that off the medieval draw weight thread - but I saw Pip Bickerstaffe too and he talked about using this formula to calculate the bow weight based on the arrows found and knowing max poss speed that a wooden bow can project an arrow...so must be able to do the reverse?
