Traditional Arrow

At what speed does an arrow leaves an average longbow?

Angela: Good answer! I was asking on behalf of a friend.
I searched the web much further:
I have the followings:
- between 66 and 100 m/s (206 and 310f/s)
- record: 200 pounds strength, average 60-80 pounds nowadays (we are getting weaker!)
Thanks!
Knowing the mass of the arrow, I wanted to know the kinetic ENERGY at the end of the "fly", but, then, since mass is "light", speed is "slow", air resistance needed to be considered (not negligeable). Interesting maths!

Most people at the range that shoots longbows, also shoots heavy wooden arrows. At the range I shoot at, there are only 4 people shooting longbows, one shoots carbon shaft out of his and the other three wood shafts, one of them with heavy bodkin point. The person shooting the carbon shaft shoots a 45 lbs bow, it's moving at 195fps. The person shooting the wood shaft with bodkins, has a 56 lbs bow arrow is going at 186fps +/- 4 fps. The other two, I haven't measured yet, but from what I can see, I'd say theirs were going at around 190fps.

300fps, is outside of the longbow realm, specially when you're using traditional arrows. A 200 lbs longbow also need very heavy arrows, there's always a point where the poundage vs speed graph start to plateau. The poundage vs KE graph will keep going up, but the speed will eventually flatten out.

Another factor for speed is the longbow limb design. Most english longbows have limbs that tappers into a point at the tip, even so, the tip is still considerably more massive than say a recurve tip. This weight distribution will cause the limb to not accelerate as quickly as a recurve limb tip.
