## Vector Equilbrium Resource

Check out this great resource I found on Vector Equilbrium:

1: ***

- The structure remains coherent in what ever way it is twisted and in whatever configuration it takes
- Some configurations are more elegantly symmetrical and reveal this unity more clearly
- This unity acquires special significance when the structure is in any of the classical three-dimensional configurations: tetrahedron
,octahedron, icosahedron (known as the Platonic solids), or vector equilibrium (an Archimedian solid) also known as cuboctahedronVector equilibrium:can be folded up to a single triangle configuration beyond which it can be reduced no further by "conventional" manipulation- In contrast to many other configurations, a few can be kept with the application of force at only one point. These include: tetrahedron, square pyramid, double square pyramid (force at common vertex)
,double tetrahedron (force at common vertex)
