# Torsional stress in axle

Calculate the stress (σ) in a round axle at distance r from the centre as a result of torsion load (T). The profile is defined in the polar moment of inertia (Ip). The polar moment of inertia can be found using the calculators of second moment of inertia.

$$\sigma= \dfrac {Tr}{I_p}$$
