Two circular shafts made of same material, one solid $$(S)$$ and one hollow $$(H)$$, have the same length and polar moment of inertia. Both are subjected to same torque. Here. $${\theta _S}$$ is the twist and $${\tau _S}$$ is the maximum shear stress in the solid shaft, whereas $${\theta _H}$$ is the twist and $${\tau _H}$$ is the maximum shear stress in the hollow shaft. Which one of the following is TRUE?
