Up to five loads can be applied to the chosen shape by setting up pulleys at various angular
positions. The lines of action of the forces are recorded by drawing along the weighted cords
onto a piece of paper attached to the pulley table. The loads are applied using the hangers
and cords provided, with the cords easily connecting to the shapes by the use of the small
hooks provided. A range of experiments is possible, investigating concurrent and non concurrent
co planar forces acting on simple shapes, comparing the experimental values with
the relevant polygons of force
