Consider a prismatic straight beam of length $L=\pi \: m$, pinned at the two ends as shown in the figure. The beam has a square cross-section of side $p=6 \: mm$. The Young’s modulus $E=200 \: GPa$, and the coefficient of thermal expansion $\alpha = 3 \times 10^{-6} K^{-1}$. The minimum temperature rise required to cause Euler buckling of the beam is _______$K$.
