asked in category: General Last Updated: 30th June, 2020# What is the polygon law?

**Polygon law**of vector addition states that if a number of vectors can be represented in magnitude and direction by the sides of a

**polygon**taken in the same order, then their resultant is represented in magnitude and direction by the closing side of the

**polygon**taken in the opposite order.

Also to know is, what is the law of polygon of force?

The **law of polygon of force** states that when two **forces** are in the same plane acting at a point represented by the direction and magnitude by the sides of a **polygon** taken in order, the closing side taken from the first to last point of the **polygon** represents the resultant **force** in magnitude and direction.

Similarly, what are the laws of vector? Triangle **law of vector** addition states that when two **vectors** are represented as two sides of the triangle with the order of magnitude and direction, then the third side of the triangle represents the magnitude and direction of the resultant **vector**.

Considering this, what is the polygon method?

**Polygon method** in physics is the extension of triangle law of vector addition. It state that if a number of vectors can be represented by the side of the **polygon** in magnitude and direction taken in order, then their resultant is represented by the side which close the **polygon** taken in the opposite order.

What is the law of parallelogram of vectors?

The Statement of **Parallelogram law** of **vector** addition is, If two **vectors** are considered to be the adjacent sides of a **parallelogram**, then the resultant of two **vectors** is given by the **vector** that is a diagonal passing through the point of contact of two **vectors**.
