Download and print Polyester Polyolefin Rope Safe Load Chart
The relationship between mass and force (weight) can be expressed as
m = F / g (1)
F = force, weight (N)
m = mass (kg)
g = acceleration of gravity (9.81 m/s2)
Maximum safe mass for a 3/8" polyester polyolefin rope where safe load is 1.0 kN can be calculated as
m = (1.0 103 N) / (9.81 m/s2)
= 102 kg
