Knowns.. $G = 80GN/m^2$ $\omega = 150rpm = \dfrac{150 * 2\pi}{60} = 5\pi \ rad/s$ $P = 75kW$ $d = 100mm = 0.1m$ $c = \dfrac{d}{2} = 50mm = 0.05m$ Relevant equations.. Polar moment of inertia ($m^4$): $J = \dfrac{1}{2} \pi c^4$ Angle of twist (in radians): $\phi = \sum\limits_i\dfrac{T_i L_i}{J_i G} = \dfrac{T L}{J G}$ (since shaft is continuous). Power, torque, speed relation: $P = T \omega \implies T = \dfrac{P}{\omega}$ Max shear stress (Pascals): $\tau_{max} = \dfrac{Tc}{J}$ Now basically plug and play. To find angle of twist we need to know the torque and inertia, $T = \dfrac{P}{\omega} = \dfrac{75000}{5\pi} \approx 4.77kNm$ $J = \dfrac{1}{2} \pi (0.05)^4 = 9.82 * 10^{-6} m^4$ $\tau_{max} = \dfrac{Tc}{J} = \dfrac{4770 * 0.05}{9.82 * 10^{-6}} \approx 24.3MPa$ $\phi$ (degrees per length) $= \dfrac{T}{JG}L = \dfrac{4770}{9.82 * 10^{-6} * 80 * 10^9}L = 0.0061 * L = 0.348L$ Thanks from Benit13
