Cantilever are gaining wide spread popularity as actuators and sensors. Cantilevers are fixed at one end and free at other end. Thus a weight added to the free end causes the cantilever beam to bend. Buckling is considered as a mathematical instability. It can cause sideways failure. In this paper various cantilever geometries are studied and their critical load factor for a fixed weight is calculated. It also shows the effect of modifying the geometry on critical load factor.
