A 3.0 m tall, 42 cm diameter concrete column supports a 230,000 kg load. By how much is the column compressed? Assume Young's modulus for concrete to be 3.0 1010 N/m2.
in mm

strain = delta L /L = sigma/modulus
sigma = Force/area
= 2.3*10^5/(pi * .24^2)
delta L = 3 * 2.3*10^5 / (pi * .24^2 *3*10^10) in meters
