Input interpretation:

Euler critical buckling load


Equation:

F_cr = (pi^2 J E)\/L^2 |  \nF_cr | critical load\nL | length of column\nJ | second moment of area\nE | Young\'s modulus\n(for a long slender column with no lateral forces and the ends pinned but free to rotate)


Input values:

length of column | 1 meter\nsecond moment of area | 5×10^-6 m^4  (meters to the fourth)\nYoung\'s modulus | 211 GPa  (gigapascals)


Result:

critical load | 1.041×10^7 N  (newtons)\n= 2.341×10^6 lbf  (pounds-force)
