Title
(EN) WATER ARROW PROJECTING BOW
(FR) ARC PROJETANT DES FLECHES D'EAU
Abstract
(EN) A toy water bow which is operated by selectively releasing water from a water reservoir (15) that is pressurized with air. The bow is formed in the general shape of an archery bow that has a manually operated air pump (49) incorporated into it. The air pump pressurizes the water reservoir and consequently exerts pressure on water contained therein. The pressurized air and water have an avenue of release (23) that is regulated by a pull mechanism (9) of the invention. When no force is applied to the pull mechanism, the pressurized air and water are held at bay without release from the reservoir. When force is applied to the pull mechanism in a predetermined manner, water is released from the pressurized reservoir and is channeled through a narrow nozzle (13). The escape of the water through the narrow nozzle creates a stream of propelled water in the form of an 'arrow' of predetermined length. The shooting may be repeated until the water is consumed or until the pressure of the reservoir equals that of the ambient air.
(FR) Jouet en forme d'arc à eau, actionné par la libération sélective d'eau d'un réservoir à eau (15) soumis à une pression pneumatique. L'arc présente la forme générale d'un arc de tir à l'arc dans lequel est incorporée une pompe à air (49) à actionnement manuel. La pompe à air met sous pression le réservoir à eau et exerce en conséquence une pression sur l'eau qui y est contenue. L'eau et l'air sous pression présentent un passage de libération (23) régulé par un mécanisme de traction (9) de l'invention. Lorsqu'aucune force n'est appliquée au mécanisme de traction, l'air et l'eau sous pression sont retenus de façon à ne pouvoir être libérés du réservoir. Lorsqu'une force est appliquée d'une manière prédéterminée au mécanisme de traction, l'eau est libérée du réservoir sous pression et est canalisée à travers un ajutage étroit (13). L'évacuation de l'eau à travers l'ajutage étroit produit un jet d'eau propulsé sous la forme d'une 'flèche' d'une longueur prédéterminée. Le tir peut être répété jusqu'à ce que l'eau soit épuisée ou que la pression dans le réservoir équivaut à celle de l'air ambiant.
