Question 22 - Science Practice Test for the NLN PAX

Which energy transfer was being investigated in the experiment described in the paragraph?

A student wanted to find out how far to pull back on a bowstring to get an arrow to travel exactly 50 meters. He pulled the bowstring back 10 centimeters from its resting position, shot the arrow, and measured the distance it traveled. He continued this method, increasing the amount he pulled back by five centimeters each time. He found that the arrow traveled 50 meters most often when the bowstring was pulled back 35 centimeters.
