If the bearing at A suddenly freezes, what will be the maximum angle of twist of the shaft? What is the corresponding maximum shear stress in the shaft? (Let L length of the shaft, G shear modulus of elasticity, and Im mass moment of inertia of the flywheel about the axis of the shaft. Also, disregard friction in the bearings at B and C and disregard the mass of the shaft.) A d n (rpm) B C Hint: Equate the kinetic energy of the rotating flywheel to the strain energy of the shaft.
