In the formula l is the critical length. If both the end is fixed l= l/2 if both the end is hanged l= l if one end is fixed and other is hinged l= l/root2 if one end fixed other is free l= 2l Hence, in your question, option c is right.

Test: Solid Mechanics - Question 2

### A strut 2.5m long is 60mm in diameter. One end of the strut is fixed while its other end is hinged. Using factor of safety 3.5, the safe compressive load for the member is: E = 2.1 × 105 N/mm2

Detailed Solution for Test: Solid Mechanics - Question 2

Step 1: Data
Length of the column = 2500mm
Diameter of the column = 60mm
Condition = one end hinged and other end fixed
FOS=3.5
E=2.1x105N/mm2

Step 2: Calculation of moment of inertia
I = π d 4 / 64
I= π (60)4 / 64
I = 0.636X106mm4

Step 3: Calculation of  crippling load
Condition = one end hinged and other end fixed
P = 2 Π 2E I/ L2
P = 2 Π 2(2.1x105) (0.636X106) / (2500)2
P = 421.81 KN

Step 4: Calculation of safe load
