Enter the total bow length (in) into the Bow String Length Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Bow String Length.

## Bow String Length Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Bow String Length.

BSL = BL - 4
• Where BSL is the Bow String Length (in)
• BL is the total bow length (in)

To calculate a bow string length, 4 inches from the total bow length.

## How to Calculate Bow String Length?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Bow String Length.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total bow length (in).
• The total bow length (in) is given as: 30.
2. Finally, calculate the Bow String Length using the equation above:

BSL = BL – 4

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

BSL = 30 – 4 = 26 (in)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total bow length (in) = 40
