If the shaft is under torsion, then the given answer is right.

On other cases, option C is the right answer.

Shear stress = (twisting moment x distance of twisting moment from the center)/(polar moment of inertia).

Shear stress = (T x r) / J.

Ayush said:   4 years ago
B is correct.

J is constant quantity.

How the answer is C? Please explain me.

Srilakshmi said:   6 years ago
Yes, answer c is the correct answer.

T/Jr=shear stress.

Balaji ballagiri said:   6 years ago
Absolutely the correct answer is option c.
