1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data If I have shot an arrow, would that arrow speed slow down due to air resistance? If so, would that mean that the the acceleration would be de-accelerating? 2. Relevant equations f = ma 3. The attempt at a solution This isn't a a hw problem, this is just something I was wondering about the basic laws Any who, If I shot an arrow where there is air but no gravity, would the arrow eventually slow down? Because i'd imagine if there was no air than the velocity/speed would increase because the acceleration wouldn't change. Please elaborate fully, this is my first time taking physics, I just want to learn.
