Homework Help: Strain energy in a tapered rod under torsion

  1. Apr 5, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    3. The attempt at a solution

    So if you look at my attempt, I integrated the strain energy density function and at the end everything cancels out. Does anyone know what I did wrong?
