Calculate the maximum stress* induced in a cast iron pipe of external diameter 40 mm, of internal diameter 20 mm and of length 4 metre when the pipe is supported at its ends and carries a point load of 80 N at its centre.

*The bending stress will be maximum at the section where B.M. is maximum. This is because

\frac{M}{I}=\frac{\sigma}{y} \text { or } \quad \sigma=\frac{M}{I} \times y \text {. }
