Question details

1.18 A load P is applied to a steel rod supported as shown by an alu- minum plate into which a 12-mm-diameter hole has been drilled. Knowing that the shearing stress must not exceed 180 MPa in the steel rod and 70 MPa in the aluminum plate, determine the larg- est load P that can be applied to the rod. 40 mm 10 mm 8 mm 12 mm Fig. P1.18

Every solution to this problem that gives the correct answer calculates the areas necessary for solving the problem as A=pi dt. I don't understand why that is, why would you not use A=pi r^2 ?
