An arrow, starting from rest, leaves the bow with a speed of 19.5 m/s. If the average force exerted on the arrow by the bow were doubled, all else remaining the same, with what speed would the arrow leave the bow?

2. Relevant equations

f=ma

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that when the force is doubled, so is the acceleration and therefore the rate of change in velocity is increased. I know that the velocity is not simply doubled as the acceleration increases the velocity over time. I'm not sure where to go with this problem because every possible solution I can think of would involve me knowing the time or the displacement, which I can't figure out how to get from the problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
