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:

- First, determine the total bow length (in).
- The total bow length (in) is given as: 30.

- 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

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

BSL = BL – 4** = ?**
