...parallel to them in direction and proportional to them in magnitude. * PROP. XIV. If three forces, **represented in magnitude and direction by the sides of a triangle taken in order,** act on a point, they will keep it in equilibrium. Let three forces, represented in magnitude and direction... | |

...the pressure on the fulcrum be 25 pounds, what are the magnitudes of the forces ? 2. If three forces **represented in magnitude and direction by the sides of a triangle taken in order,** act on a point, they will keep it at rest. Two forces whose magnitudes are 12 and 5 pounds respectively,... | |
