Homework Help: Physical laws that affects archery?

  1. Oct 21, 2008 #1
    We have this project at school to research about the laws,concepts,principles that affects a certain sport. And the sport given to us was Archery.

    I have researched one law that affects archery and that's Hooke's law which : is an approximation that states that the amount by which a material body is deformed (the strain) is linearly related to the force causing the deformation (the stress). Materials for which Hooke's law is a useful approximation are known as linear-elastic or "Hookean" materials.

    - Hooke's law affects archery when you pull the string of the bow.

    Till now I'm still researching for laws,concepts,principles that affects archery. But I am not familiar of laws. Which is why I'm asking for your help.

    What about the physics of the arrow in flight?
