Easy question(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Have a 5ft x 5ft x 5ft structure made from 3/8 carbon steel AISI 1018 I think

What is the max load this thing can take? What's the formula?

Stress=F/A

F=Stress*A???

Do I use the Modulus of Rigidity? Elasticity? Where can I find these values?

thanks
