CALCULATION OF APPROXIMATE BREAKING STRENGTH (B.S) AND SAFE WORKING LOAD (S.W.L) FORMANILAROPE
Method of finding theBreaking Strength (B.S)is to divide the square of the diameter of the rope in millimetres by200.

Breaking strength = diameter² / 200
= 24² / 200
= 576 / 200
=2.88 tonnes (approx. 3 tonnes)CALCULATION OF APPROXIMATE BREAKING STRENGTH (B.S) AND SAFE WORKING LOAD (S.W.L) FOR POLYPROPYLENE ROPE

Method of finding theBreaking Strength (B.S)is to divide the square of the diameter of the rope in millimetres by77 tonnes.

Breaking strength = diameter² / 77
= 24² / 77
= 576 / 77
=7.48 tonnes (approx. 7 tonnes)
ALCULATION OF APPROXIMATE BREAKING STRENGTH (B.S) AND SAFE WORKING LOAD (S.W.L) FOR POLYETHYLENE ROPE

Method of finding theBreaking Strength (B.S)is to divide the square of the diameter of the rope in millimetres by106 tonnes.

Breaking strength = diameter² / 106
= 24² / 106
= 576 / 106
=5.43 tonnes (approx. 5 tonnes)

What is  Breaki strength = diameter² / 77
What is 77
