# Should you ever shoot an arrow straight up into the air?

## Should you ever shoot an arrow straight up into the air?

You should never shoot an arrow straight up into the air. It is dangerous because the arrow usually comes straight back down.

What happens when you shoot an arrow up?

When you shoot an arrow at 90º, the arrow will reach its vertex, then it will disappear. Then another arrow will spawn way above it on a different (seemingly constrained, but random) axis, and will fall back to the ground.

### How far can you shoot an arrow straight up?

A 50 pound bow would fire it about 369 m (403 yards) up, and a 65 pound bow would fire it about 470 m (514 yards) up. In reality, you’d be firing in an atmosphere, not perfectly straight up, and not under ideal conditions, so expect a good bit less.

What is an arrow shot?

noun. 1The action or an act of shooting an arrow; an arrow or arrows so shot. 2The distance which an arrow travels when shot from a bow, a bowshot.

## Does an arrow gain speed?

Air resistance is fine and everything—but it adds a big problem to the falling arrow. As the arrow falls, it increases in speed. As the speed increases, the drag force increases. This means that a falling arrow has a non-constant force and a non-constant acceleration.

How high will the arrow be 7 seconds after?

Next problem: How high will the arrow be 7 seconds after being shot up at 50m/s? Answer: 105m.

### Are Heavier arrows more accurate?

All factors remaining equal, heavy arrows always are more reliable, more durable, than lighter. More material, with additional layers of carbon material, equal more strength when subjected to abuse such as bone impacts or when shot into rocky ground or bounced off trees following misses.

How high will an arrow be 7.00 seconds after being shot straight up at 50.00 m s?

## What speed is free fall?

approximately 9.8 m/s2
Near the surface of the Earth, an object in free fall in a vacuum will accelerate at approximately 9.8 m/s2, independent of its mass. With air resistance acting on an object that has been dropped, the object will eventually reach a terminal velocity, which is around 53 m/s (190 km/h or 118 mph) for a human skydiver.
