The figure shows a shaft mounted in bearings at A and D and having pulleys at B and C. The
forces shown acting on the pulley surfaces represent the belt tensions. The shaft is to be made of
AISI 1035 CD steel. Using a conservative failure theory with a design factor of 2, determine the
minimum shaft diameter to avoid yielding.
