Polygon of force

This topic just builds on the previous Triangle of Forces.

Consider three forces A, B and C.  A and B can be added by drawing a triangle to give a resultant.

If force C is joined to this resultant, a further or "new" resultant is created, which represents the effect of all three forces.

Now this procedure can be repeated many times; the effect is to produce a Polygon of Forces.

Again, the resultant can be derived  mathematically.
