Arrow Energy Formula:

 How to figure arrow energy:
 First: You need a scale to weigh your arrow in grains with arrowhead installed.
 Second: You need a chronograph to measure your arrow speed in fps.
 Third: Velocity x Velocity x Arrow Weight = ? Divided By 450,340 =
 Kinetic Energy In Foot Pounds.

 Don't like math, use energy calculator below.
