    4P is the resultant according to the polygon law of forces but it should be in opposite direction.

    I think polygon law is based on Vector only.

    alright. vectors can be slid in a direction parallel to theirs. So, it would become |dw:1337765692337:dw|

    just what shayanreloaded drew. but if P is a variable and P-3P=-2P horizontal, 2P-4P=-2 vertical

    Hi all....pls tell me why cant the resultant be simply zero..since when vectors are represented by the sides of a closed polygon taken in same order, the resultant is zero. Pls help!!!!
