The fact is, however, that if three forces meeting at a point are in equilibrium they may be represented in magnitude and direction by the three sides of a triangle drawn to scale. Structural and Stress Analysis - Page 26by T.H.G. Megson - 2005 - 744 pagesLimited preview - About this book

...by the sides of a triangle taken in order they must be in equilibrium. The converse of this theorem **states that if three forces acting at a point are in equilibrium they** can be represented in magnitude and direction by the sides of a triangle taken in order. Since all... | |
