As it at already been said, do NOT use CAPITAL letters as variable name. 
   For instance, this following attempt to define a variable called 
capital I is a very nasty one:

I = (P/2)*Pi*r*L
--> Set::"wrsym" : "Symbol (I) is Protected.

Capital I is already defined as Sqrt[-1]. Basically, you just tried to 
change the value of the imaginary unit, unit that is of quite importance 
in mathematics in particular and in sciences in general.

You definitely should spend some time reading the documentation.
