The bow is a narrow, slightly incurved stick of Pernambuco about 30 in long, with a band of horsehair stretched from end to end of the bowstick. The development of the modern bow began around 1700. An man named Corelli made it short and inelastic. Fifty years later Tortini made a bow longer and more flexible. A compromise between the two styles was made, creating the Tourte bow in the 19th century. It is an inward curving stick designed for good balance and is still used today.
In string playing, a bundle of bleached horsehairs stretched tautly between the ends of a wooden stick. To produce a sound, the bow is drawn over one or more of the strings.

a long bow, recurve bow or compound bow that is a device for launching an arrow which derives its propulsive energy solely from the bending and recovery of two limbs, and that is hand-held and hand-drawn by a single and direct pulling action of the bowstring by the shooter with the shooter's fingers or a hand-held or wrist-attached release aid; the energy used to propel the arrow may not be derived from hydraulic, pneumatic, explosive, or mechanical devices, but may be derived from the mechanical advantage provided by wheels or cams if the available energy is stored in the bent limbs of the bow; no portion of the bow's riser (handle) or an attachment to the bow's riser may contact, support, or guide the arrow from a point rearward of the bowstring when strung and at rest; "bow" does not include a crossbow or any device that has a gun-type stock or incorporates any mechanism that holds the bowstring at partial or full draw without the shooter's muscle power

A bow is an ancient weapon that shoots arrows powered by the elasticity of the bow. Energy is stored in the limbs of the bow and transformed into rapid motion when the string is released, with the string transferring this motion to the arrow. The bow is used for hunting, sport (target shooting), and in historical times was a weapon of war.
In music, a bow is a device pulled across the strings of a string instrument in order to make them vibrate and emit sound.
