An archer shoots an arrow in


An archer shoots an arrow in the air horizontally. However, after moving some distance, the arrow falls to the ground. Name the initial force

that sets the arrow in motion. Explain why the arrow ultimately falls down?


The archer shoots an arrow by applying muscular force to stretches the string of the bow. When the string is released, it regains its original position

that provides the initial force to set the arrow in motion horizontally.

The force of gravity that acts on the arrow in the downward direction and hence, the arrow ultimately falls to the ground.
