An axial load P is applied at a point located on the x axis at a distance 657e 5 12 mm from the geometric axis of the W310 3 60 rolled-steelcolumn BC. Assuming that L 5 3.5 m and using E 5 200 GPa,determine (a) the load P for which the horizontal deflection at endC is 15 mm, (b) the corresponding maximum stress in the column.
