Need help determining strength of aluminum rod please.

I need to know how much weight a =BD=94 aluminum rod will support. The rod=
is T-6061-T6 and is 18=94 long. It will be support by the first 3=94 in a =
fixture. How much weight can I put on the end before it bends?

Dear LaneG:
Round rod? The 3" is very rigidly held, but will not cut into the bottom "fibers" of the rod?
