Archer’s Paradox

ADDPMP581

When shot, an arrow travels in the direction it is precisely pointed by the archer. Yet, the bow handle seems to be an obstacle that the arrow is forced to bypass in order to reach the target. The explanation of this phenomenon is the bending of the arrow when released: an archer must aim with an offset on the opposite side of the arm pulling the string, that the arrow’s flight curve will correct; this is why the paradox occurs and should not be confused with the paradox itself.

Detailed descriptions of the phenomenon first appeared in the 1859 text Archery: Its Theory and Practice, but the term Archer’s Paradox was coined only in 1913.
