Please calculate by hand and submit it with all calculation processes. Don’t post here.

A solid circular rod of diameter d undergoes a bending moment M = 113 Nm inducting a stress sigma=32M/(pi*d^2). Using a material strength 172.4 MPa and a design factor of 2.5, determine the minimum diameter of the rod. Using Table A-17 or the handout, select a preferred fractional diameter and determine the resulting factor of safety.
