Here's the question:

An arrow, starting from rest, leaves the bow with a speed of 25.0 m/s. If the average force exerted 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 I need to find a new initial velocity for the arrow for which the force is doubled. And the question states that all else remains constant. I may need to find the acceleration using F = ma but I'm just not sure where to start at all. I just need a small kick so I know where I'm going
