The answer depends on whether your teacher expects a design conform to codes, for example AISC, CISC, etc. It may be that he covered Euler buckling and simply the theoretical load is required. The context will determine the exact answer.
Meanwhile, it would be advantageous to Google the subject "Euler buckling" and do some research or studies. An article that seems to be quite adequate is:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buckling
And the Euler buckling load/stress formulae are presented in the article.
