mechanical properties of materials

A cylindrical tank with flat endplates is constructed from two sections that are welded together circumferentially.The outer diameter of the tank is 1.20, and the wall of the tank is 20.0 mm thick and the mamimum internal pressure is 2.00 MPa.
(a) Calculate the maximum hoop stress in the tank
(b) Calculate the maximum tensile stress in the tank
(c) The tensile strength of the weld is 350 MPa and the shear strength of the weld is 40% of the tensile strength. what is the magnitude of the tensile stress that will cause the weld to burst open
