## Shear stress in socket of cotter joint given inner and outer diameter of socket Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Shear Stress in Socket = (Load)/(2*(Diameter of Socket Collar-Diameter of Spigot)*Axial Distance From Slot to End of Socket Collar)
τ = (L)/(2*(d4-d2)*c)
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Load - Load is basically the amount of load/force any material, product, joint, can bear or is acted upon or exerts. (Measured in Newton)
Diameter of Socket Collar - Diameter of socket collar is the external diameter of collar of the socket of a cotter joint. (Measured in Millimeter)
Diameter of Spigot - The diameter of Spigot is defined as the diameter of the external surface of the spigot or the inner diameter of the socket. (Measured in Millimeter)
Axial Distance From Slot to End of Socket Collar - Axial Distance From Slot to End of Socket Collar is the distance between the slot for cotter to the end of socket collar measured along the socket axis. (Measured in Millimeter)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Load: 5250 Newton --> 5250 Newton No Conversion Required
Diameter of Socket Collar: 100 Millimeter --> 0.1 Meter (Check conversion here)
Diameter of Spigot: 45 Millimeter --> 0.045 Meter (Check conversion here)
Axial Distance From Slot to End of Socket Collar: 12 Millimeter --> 0.012 Meter (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
τ = (L)/(2*(d4-d2)*c) --> (5250)/(2*(0.1-0.045)*0.012)
Evaluating ... ...
τ = 3977272.72727273
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
3977272.72727273 Pascal -->3.97727272727273 Newton per Square Millimeter (Check conversion here)
3.97727272727273 Newton per Square Millimeter <-- Shear Stress in Socket

### Shear stress in socket of cotter joint given inner and outer diameter of socket Formula

Shear Stress in Socket = (Load)/(2*(Diameter of Socket Collar-Diameter of Spigot)*Axial Distance From Slot to End of Socket Collar)
τ = (L)/(2*(d4-d2)*c)

## Loads supported by a cotter joint

Cotter joints are used to support axial loads between the two rods, tensile or compressive. Although a cotter joint will resist the rotation of one rod relative to the other, it should not be used to join rotating shafts. This is because the cotter will not be balanced and may work loose under the combination of vibration and centrifugal force.
