1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A cylinder has an internal diameter of 30mm and an external diameter of 50mm and is subject to an internal pressure which is 60MPa above that in the air surrounding the cylinder. Determine the radial and hoop stresses at the inner and outer surfaces. 2. Relevant equations Basically i know: internal radius in know as r1 external radius is r2 radial stress: pr1 squared/r2squaredr1squared X (r squared  r2 squared/ r squared) hoop stresses : pr1 squared/r2squaredr1squared X (r squared + r2 squared/ r squared) I dont know if these two equations are correct hopefully somebody could clarify this for me because the working out should be simple when this is known. 3. The attempt at a solution I dont know what "r" is? If i knew that i could take a stab at the equations hopefully somebody could give me two answers and if the equations are correct and two answers and i will do it myself to check this. Thanks 1.

Yeah ive got that. I mean "r" on its own in the equation. I know the values for r1  0.015m
r2  0.025m Internal pressure  60x10 to the power of 6 Nm2
