# Varignon theorem

One of the fundamental theorems in the theory of sliding vectors (cf. Vector). According to Varignon's theorem, if a system of sliding vectors $F_{\nu}$ can be reduced to a single resultant $F$, the moment of the resultant about some point 0 (or axis $I$) is equal to the sum of the moments of the vectors constituting the system about this point (or axis): $$\mathrm{mom}_0 F = \sum_{\nu} \mathrm{mom}_0 F_{\nu}\,;\ \ \ \mathrm{mom}_I F = \sum_{\nu} \mathrm{mom}_I F_{\nu} \ .$$
