## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello,

If I have a shaft that has a section area of .0562 in. sq. and a material yield strength of 60KSI.

And I will have the force applied at the top of the shaft pushing down.

The shaft will be in a cantilever configuration where the force will be applied .125" from the base of the shaft.

How to I calculate the maximum force that can be applied to the shaft before exceeding the yield strength?

Also the shaft is not a perfect circle. It is a circle with an radial under cut.

Thank you.
