Here is how the Q Factor calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.638323 = ((1*3/50)^2)*(35000000/(2*pi*pi*10000)).

FAQ

What is Q Factor?
The Q Factor formula is defined as geometrical constant depending upon material of member along with slenderness ratio and is represented as Q=((k*l/r)^2)*(σy/(2*pi*pi*E)) or Q Factors=((effective length factor*Length/Least Radius of Gyration)^2)*(Yield Strength/(2*pi*pi*Modulus Of Elasticity)). Effective length factor is defined as the factor used for the members in the frame. It depends on the ratio of compression member stiffness to the end restraint stiffness. , Length is the measurement or extent of something from end to end, The Least Radius of Gyration is the smallest value of the radius of gyration is used for structural calculations, Yield strength can be defined as follows, a straight line is constructed parallel to the elastic portion of the stress–strain curve at a strain offset of 0.002. The stress corresponding to the intersection of this line and the stress–strain curve is defined as the yield strength and Modulus Of Elasticity is a quantity that measures an object or substance's resistance to being deformed elastically when a stress is applied to it.
How to calculate Q Factor?
