## Homework Statement

Two coaxial shafts are to be connected by a flanged coupling having six 15 mm diameter bolts equally spaced around a 300 mm diameter pitch circle. Determine the shear stress in the bolts when 300 kW is transmitted at 400 revs/min;

(i) Assuming the bolts are equally loaded

(ii) Assuming one bolt to be ahead of the others and carrying the entire torque

## Homework Equations

Shear stress (MPa) = Force (Newtons) / Area (mm^2)

Torque = power/ angular velocity

## The Attempt at a Solution

I found torque but can't work out the shear stress. Also part (ii) of the question is confusing me.
