 Problem
8:
“Zero
to
sixty
and
stop
on
a
dime.”
 
 The
Ducati
1198
motorcycle
 (pictured
below)
is
fast
as
heck:
in
 1st,
2nd
and
3rd
gears
it
has
a
higher
 thrust‐to‐weight
ratio
than
the
F‐18
 fighter
jet.

It
goes
from
0
to
60
in
 just
over
2
seconds.

If
you
 somehow
mounted
it
to
a
vertical
 rail
and
opened
the
throttle,
the
 bike
would
accelerate
itself
and
you
 upwards
FASTER
than
a
falling
rock
 accelerates
down!
 Practically
speaking,
the
 maximum
torque
that
the
“Duc’s”
V‐ Twin
power
plant
can
deliver
to
the
 rear
wheel
is
about
150Nm
(110
ft‐ lbs).

If
the
short
aluminum
sleeve
 shaft
(G=26GPa,
tau_yield=200Mpa)
 that
connects
the
rear
sprocket
to
the
rear
wheel
has
an
inner
diameter
of
30mm,
how
thick
must
you
 make
it
to
support
that
torque
without
exceeding
it’s
yield
strength?

If
you
wanted
to
build
in
a
factor
of
 safety
of
4
(and
so
not
exceed
a
shear
stress
of
50MPa),
how
thick
would
you
have
to
make
it
then?
