...COR. If the components be represented in magnitude and direction by the sides of a parallelogram, the **resultant is represented in magnitude and direction by the diagonal of the parallelogram.** DBF. Forces may be represented by lines parallel to them in direction and proportional to them in magnitude.... | |

...COR. If the components be represented in magnitude and direction by the sides of a parallelogram, the **resultant is represented in magnitude and direction by the diagonal of the parallelogram.** 56. PROP. Any force represented in magnitude and direction by one side of a triangle, is equivalent... | |
