# A solid square rod is cantilevered at one end. The rod is 0.8 m long and supports a completely reversing transverse load at the other end of 1 kN. The material is AISI 1045 hot-rolled steel. If the rod must support this load for 104 cycles with a factor of safety of 1.5, what dimension should the square cross section

A solid square rod is cantilevered at one end. The rod is 0.8 m long and supports a completely reversing transverse load at the other end of ±1 kN. The material is AISI 1045 hot-rolled steel.
If the rod must support this load for 104 cycles with a factor of safety of 1.5, what dimension should the square cross section have? Neglect any stress concentrations at the support end and assume that f = 0.9.
