The cotter is used to hold the two rods together. Determine the smallest thickness t of the cotter and the smallest diameter d of the rods. All parts are made of steel for which the failure normal stress is sfail = 500 MPa and the failure shear stress is tfail = 375 MPa. Use a factor of safety of (F.S.)t = 2.50 in tension and (F.S.)s = 1.75 in shear.
