Track and Field
 

Abstract

Note: This is the first part of a two part article regarding javelin aerodynamics. The present rules for the design of the javelin make it a perpetually stable implement which simply means that at all angles of attack, its center of pressure is always behind its center of mass and thus it tends to land tip first. The javelin will fly less than optimum if released with just brute force. Because of that, there is a need for the demonstration of both power and finesse on the part of the thrower.
