The horsepower (hp) that a shaft can safety transmit varies jointly with its speed (in revolutions per minute, or rpm) and the cube of the diameter. If a shaft of a certain material 2 in in diameter can transmit 36 hp at 75 rpm, what diameter must the shaft have in order to transmit 150 hp at 20 rpm?
