Since this is titled archery most of you reading this will probably be getting ready to read a post about the arrow and the bow and trajectory and all that fun stuff that happens in the physics of archery. Im not going to talk about that just yet, but instead I'm telling about a cool physics discovery i made while sitting in gym class. I was holding my bow and twisting it back and forth so that it was swaying and then when i stopped the twisting motions, the bow kept moving!! I remembered physics and the good old man Isaac Newton and the laws he discovered and there I discovered I was staring at one of Isaacs discoveries! An object will stay in motion unless acted on by an outside force. The bow kept moving and swaying back and forth continually since neither myself nor an outside force made the actions of stopping it.
