Velocity at distances from muzzle

  1. May 30, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Given an arrow weight of x grains and a muzzle velocity of y fps, is there a formula to compute approximate downrange velocity at, say, 20-80 yards?


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    Other than attempting to shoot through a chrony at those distances, I don't have a clue to a pencil and paper solution.

    Thank you, Coto; now I have something to do over the summer: Relearning trigonometric functions.
