In ancient bows the grip of the bow was in the way of the arrow. The arrow needed to get round the bow while being accelerated; this phenomenon is called the ‘Archer's Paradox’. In the forties it was observed experimentally with high-speed cameras that the arrow vibrates in a horizontal plane perpendicular to the vertical median plane of the bow. These movements are started and controlled by the movements of the two points of contact with the bow, viz. the middle of the string in contact with… Expand
