Say I have the equation [itex]\tau_A=\frac{5kN\cdot.040}{\frac{\pi}{2}\cdot(.04^4)}[/itex] and I want to input this without using parenthesis. What is the order to type this in the calculator with?

As for your guy, I would start with .04, raise it to the power of 4, multiply by pi, divide by 2, hit the "1/x" key, then multiply by all the stuff in the numerator consecutively. The thing I would be worried about when entering this expression into the calculator is if I try to do divide by, then enter .04, then raise to the 4th power, that it would divide by .04 before raising everything I have so far to the 4th power (some calculators will recognize a Pemdas violation I believe, but some won't).

Oh sorry, you said without using parentheses. Odd :).
