Homework Help: Relationship between angle of twist and temperature gradient

  1. Nov 17, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    To derive a formula to find the angle of twist when a torque T is applied and the temperature gradient is ΔT
    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Angle of twist Φ=TL/JG
    I believe as temperature decreases, torque will increase which means angle of twist is inversely proportional to temperature.
    Thermal strain is α.ΔT.. Should I relate torque and strain so I will be able to get T and ΔT in my equation?
