# The Law of Polygon of Forces states that

- A. If a polygon representing the forces acting at point in a body is closed, the forces are in equilibrium
- B. If forces acting on a point can be represented in magnitude and direction by the sides of a polygon taken in order, then the resultant of the forces will be represented in magnitude and direction by t
**C. If forces acting on a point can be represented of a polygon taken in order, their sides of a polygon taken in order, their resultant will be represented in magnitude and direction by the closing side**- D. If forces acting on a point can be represented in magnitude and direction by the sides of a polygon in order, the forces are in equilibrium
