2.
When a shaft, is subjected to torsion, the shear stress induced in the shaft varies from
minimum at the centre to maximum at the circumference
maximum at the centre to minimum at the circumference
zero at the centre to maximum at the circumference
maximum at the centre to zero at the circumference
Explanation:

4.
A body is subjected to a tensile stress of 1200 MPa on one plane and another tensile stress of 600 MPa on a plane at right angles to the former. It is also subjected to a shear stress of 400 MPa on the same planes. The maximum shear stress will be
400 MPa
500 MPa
900 MPa
1400 MPa
