001 Mechanics and Materials I Spring 2011 Problem Set 6 Distributed: March 31, 2011 Due: 11am Wednesday, April 6th, 2011 – Note late PSet policy on syllabus (posted online @ stellar) Problem 1: Shaft! (We can dig it)    Problem 4.3‐5 as stated in Craig.    Problem 2: “Hold on to your lug nuts, it’s time for an overhaul!”    Problem 4.3‐2 as stated in Craig.    Problem 3: Distributed Torque    Problem 4.3‐15 as stated in Craig.    Problem 4: Opposing Torques    Problem 4.5‐10 as stated in Craig.    Problem 5: Gears of Mohr    Problem 4.5‐6 as stated in Craig.    Problem 6: Romancing the Cone    Problem 4.3‐11 as stated in Craig.    Problem 7: Bi­metallic Shaft.      Problem 4.2‐1 as stated in Craig.    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?
