Solution

Obviously, decisions need to know the breaking strength of the rope.

Cable diameter 10 mm typical breaking strength of the order of 55-65 kN (worse or better). Roughly, one kN corresponds to 100 kg mass load. So consider that it is 5500-6500 kg and divide by specific gravity.

Get 113 km. - Lulu.Reynolds commented on June 14th 19 at 20:53

You take the value from your table is already in kilograms, not in Newtons, divide by specific gravity in kilograms per kilometre, and get miles. If you multiply by 9.8 Newtons per kilogram, get a km×N/kg. what is it? - Mark.Kub commented on June 14th 19 at 20:56
