Enter the arrow velocity and the arrow mass into the calculator to determine the Arrow Momentum. 

Arrow Momentum Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Arrow Momentum.

pA = Va * ma
  • Where pA is the Arrow Momentum (m/s*kg)
  • Va is the arrow velocity (m/s)
  • ma is the arrow mass (kg)

To calculate the arrow momentum, multiply the arrow speed by the mass.

What are the units for Arrow Momentum?

The most common units for Arrow Momentum are m/s*kg.

How to Calculate Arrow Momentum?

Example Problem:

The following example problem outlines the steps and information needed to calculate the Arrow Momentum.

First, determine the arrow velocity. In this example, the arrow velocity is determined to be 11 (m/s).

Next, determine the arrow mass. For this problem, the arrow mass is measured to be 3 (kg).

Finally, calculate the Arrow Momentum using the formula above: 

pA = Va * ma

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives: pA = 11 * 3 = 33 (m/s*kg)
