1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 1–80. The thrust bearing consists of a circular collar A fixed to the shaft B.Determine the maximum axial force P that can be applied to the shaft so that it does not cause the shear stress along a cylindrical surface a or b to exceed an allowable shear stress of 170 MPa. 2. Relevant equations T=V/A or T = P/A 3. The attempt at a solution This is how I thought I would draw my FBD therefore I thought that if I did the summation of all forces in the x direction, P = Va+Vb However, the solution takes it individually, like this: T = P/A for a and T = P/A for b and calculates each P. This is confusnig me because, shouldnt the two V (shear forces) equal to the Maximum axial force? thanks for any help, Id really like to understand this.
