This Apparatus represents a planar central force system in which multiple forces act on a
single point of application. Based on the example of a crane jib, forces are determined
graphically and experimentally: resultant cable force, tensile force, compressive force. The
directions and magnitudes of the forces are determined graphically by way of a force
parallelogram. A bar of adjustable length and a chain make up the crane jib, which is attached
by adjustable clamp elements to a retaining bar. A variety of jib forms can be created. Loads
are applied to the crane jib. The occurring bar forces are indicated by integrated spring
