Homework Help: Find the shear stress

  1. Dec 13, 2015 #1
    A rule often used in shaft design states that the angle of twist shall not exceed 1 on a length equal to 20 diameters. What stress in the material does this imply if the modulus of rigidity is equal to 80 × 103 N/mm2 ?
    was wondering if anybody had an insight on how to do this ?

    have tried a few ways but keep being left with 2 unknowns
