This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

A pinned connected axially loaded steel bar is used as a compression member. The bar has a rectangular cross section 1 in. by 2 in. the proportional limit is 30,000psi. Calculate the minimum length for Euler's formula to be applicable, In addition calculate the critical stress and the critical load if the length of the bar is 5 ft.
