Track and Field
 

Abstract

Editor’s note: This is the second and final part of the article regarding javelin aerodynamics. The first part appeared in the previous issue. The javelin during its flight can rotate three different ways. It can rotate about its long axis, about its short horizontal axis and its short vertical axis. When the javelin is released, there is always a rotation about its long axis at a rate that fluctuates between 15 to 32 revolutions per second for the majority of good throwers.
