Hello readers,

Below is a question which we would recommend to solve from SOM for GATE and ESE Mains. Try it on your own first and then go through our solution.

**ELONGATION AND MAXIMUM STRESS INDUCED ON A ROTATING BAR**

**Find the maximum stress induced in the bar and the elongation due to rotation when**

**a) axis of rotation passes through centroid of the bar.**

**b) axis of rotation passes through one end of the bar.**

**Solution:**

a)

**Now let us come to the calculation of Maximum stress:**

**Expression for elongation and maximum stress in terms of density:**

**b)**

Similar analysis can be done when the bar is rotating about one end to get the following expressions:
