# STEP 1

### This is a vital step in the overall process. Even though we are under a time constraint, we cannot simply scan through the problem since we might miss important information needed to solve the problem. Sometimes figures and tables will be provided to us in the problem statement, therefore, as we read the problem, we must try to relate the sentences to these figures/tables and vice versa. The goal is to read the problem with a PURPOSE answer the following questions:

• What information is GIVEN in the problem statement?
• What do will I need to FIND?
• Do I have everything I need to SOLVE the problem?

# GIVEN

### As we read the problem statement, we must extract all information provided. We will simultaneously do two things:

• We will begin visualizing the problem by rough sketching the physical objects involve or drawing a free body diagram if needed.
• We will list everything that is given including constraints, values, and variables.

# FIND

### After taking a mental and visual note of everything we are given; we will apply the following steps:

• List what we need to find.
• List the final units required for our final answer.

# SOLVE

### This is where we must take the initiative to conceptually understand how to apply the equation. We can begin to take notes covering the topic of torsional stress in several ways:

• Googling an article discussing torsion stress.
• Googling images discussing torsion stress.
• Watching a short YouTube video covering torsion stress.
• Watching a portion of an online course covering torsion stress.
• Reading an article or a section of a text covering torsion stress.
• Reading a specific FE exam book that conceptually covers the topic of torsion stress.
