## Homework Statement

Calculate the diameter of a meduim carbon steel pin in double shear subjected to a suddenly applied shearing force of 150000N?

## Homework Equations

A=p/t

p=300000 ( double shear) t=580 ( ultime shear strength)

## The Attempt at a Solution

Double shear 150000 x 2 = p

A = p/t

30000/580 = 517.24138 square root = 22mm

Answer 22mm

Is this correct ? if not could someone please help me where i am going wrong thanks
