but air is more harmful when injected, as it could cause a heart attack, comparative to burping or farting when swallowed..

How about those lines of teeth which are wholly unsuitable for eating plants or the fact that marks have been found on other dinosaurs's bones which fit the teeth of tyrannosaurus perfectly or the fact that it's eyes were pointed forward giving it binocular vision an attribute commonly found in predators we might not have been there to observe a live tyrannosaurus but all the evidence points to a carnivorous lifestyle.

A heavier arrow is less dependable on wind however, it will also maintain its speed better.
The downside of course is that it will accelerate towards the Earth faster, but that may not be a concern, depending on the circumstances.

Yes a heavier arrow will not drift of course as easily however an arrow made of steel would be so heavy I would be surprised if it reaches more than 25 meters not to mention the fact that in warfare accuracy is a moot point since you are shooting at a concentrated mass of men over 200 yards away and with hunting wind is a moot point since shooting at a target which is over 30 meters away is just a way of scaring your target. maintaining speed is rather useless when you have barely any speed to begin with a much more effective way to maintain arrow velocity is by using smaller/more aerodynamically efficient fletchings. historically arrows used by the english weighed around 980 grains (63.5 grams) had a shaft made of wood 1/2 inch thick just behind the head tapering down to 3/8 inch at the nock fletched with three goose feathers about 7.5 inch long by 5/8 inch high cut in a triangular shape and armed with an armor piercing bodkin head. The arrows I use for target shooting and 3d shooting with my 50 lb longbow weigh around 450 grains (29.16 grams) and are fletched with three 5 inch parabolic shaped fletchings they are 5/16 inches in diameter.

User avatar #75 - sinery (02/01/2014) [-]
What I was most interested about the arrows was if a wooden shaft itself is better than a steel shaft.
Assuming both arrows has the same mass and shape, they "should" have the same speed once fired.
But not all energy (apart from resistance) is transferred into speed when the arrow is fired.

There is elastic energy in the arrow which "bury" the arrow into the target.

So theoretically a wooden arrow should have less speed than a steel arrow, while the wooden arrow has more elastic energy.
Question is which one is more important?
#76 - reteip (02/01/2014) [-]
A steel arrow which has the same mass as a wooden arrow will be so thin that when shot it will not hold up against the force of the string. wood is surprisingly stiff for it's mass and is also the reason why even modern bows have a wooden/bamboo core (excluding high end target recurves and all compound bows) a steel arrow which is stiff enough (has enough spine) will be so heavy it will be utterly useless.

But then again, we're not interested in time, place or resources available. We could go on a debate that lasts long time, but it's getting late and I really don't want to.

For example, Leather was the most common armor where hunting was prominent, and gambesons were basic equipment elsewhere. Gambesons, like I said, could be modified in various ways from ring mail and coat of plates to brigandine etc.

I'm not sure if they even knew about aluminium "in those days". We could be talking anywhere from the 4th century and onward on the topic of chain mail.
