Two metal beams are joined together by four rivets, as the drawing indicates. Each rivet has a radius of 5.0 10-3 m and is to be exposed to a shearing stress of no more than 4.6 108 Pa. What is the maximum tension T that can be applied to each beam, assuming that each rivet carries one-fourth of the total load?
