## Diameter of spigot of cotter joint given compressive stress Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Diameter of Spigot = (Diameter of Socket Collar)-((Load)/(Thickness of cotter*Compressive Stress In Spigot))
d2 = (d4)-((L)/(tc*σc))
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Diameter of Socket Collar - Diameter of socket collar is the external diameter of collar of the socket of a cotter joint. (Measured in Millimeter)
Load - Load is basically the amount of load/force any material, product, joint, can bear or is acted upon or exerts. (Measured in Newton)
Thickness of cotter - Thickness of cotter is the measure of how much broad is the cotter in direction perpendicular to axial force. (Measured in Millimeter)
Compressive Stress In Spigot - Compressive Stress In Spigot is the amount of stress generated into the spigot due to the compressive force on it. (Measured in Newton per Square Millimeter)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Diameter of Socket Collar: 100 Millimeter --> 0.1 Meter (Check conversion here)
Load: 5250 Newton --> 5250 Newton No Conversion Required
Thickness of cotter: 10 Millimeter --> 0.01 Meter (Check conversion here)
Compressive Stress In Spigot: 40 Newton per Square Millimeter --> 40000000 Pascal (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
d2 = (d4)-((L)/(tcc)) --> (0.1)-((5250)/(0.01*40000000))
Evaluating ... ...
d2 = 0.086875
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.086875 Meter -->86.875 Millimeter (Check conversion here)
86.875 Millimeter <-- Diameter of Spigot
