Hi all,

Can anyone help with this problem from my statics revision? It's the only one from my worksheet I am struggling with.

A solid steel shaft has a diameter of 60mm. Determine the maximum torque that can be applied to the shaft if the maximum twist per meter is to be 1 degree. The shaft has a shear modulus of 80 GPa.

I don't seem to have anything in my notes that would help me tackle this problem.

Thanks in advance for your help.
