A thin-walled cylindrical can with rigid end caps has a mean radius $R=100\:mm$ and a wall thickness of $t=5 \: mm$. The can is pressurized and an additional tensile stress of a $50 \: MPa$ is imposed along the axial direction as shown in the figure. Assume that the state of stress in the wall is uniform along its length. If the magnitudes of axial and circumferential components of stress in the can are equal, the pressure (in $MPa$) inside the can is ___________ (correct to two decimal places)
