Hello

I was wondering if you design a compound bow with C shaped limbs that are longer than the straight limbs will the limbs store more potential energy and will there be less loss of energy when the arrow is shot?

Thanks

More likely to get an answer if you post your question here instead r/AskEngineers

This forum is not for this kind of question. People here are only concerned with the PE exam

I'd be curious to see a picture of what you mean. But I suspect the answer is "it depends" :)
