A steel rope consists of 100 rods. The diameter of each rod is 2 mm. The allowable rope stress is 130 N/mm^2.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

what maximal load can be lifted from a depth of 1000 m ?

i use 100*130 N/mm^2 = 4*F(max) / pi * (4)

in order to find F(max).Am i correct??how can i use the length given??

thanx
