Solution Preview

What we have here is two tubes with equal radius and thickness. The ratio of the angle of twist for the tube with the closed section over the tube with the open section is 3(R^2/t^2). (In words this is 3 times R squared divided by t squared.) How is this determined to be so? The formula for angle of twist is TL/GJ where T = the internal torque in the shaft, L = the length of shaft ...
