Hello, most steel cable is sold with the breaking strength as part of the listing. For example a 3/64 diameter cable has a breaking point of 270 pounds. You calculate the amount of weight you want to support and choose a cable to support that weight. Here is link to an example of how a company list there cables . These are all in USA measurements and are inches and pounds. Thank You Tom Please click accept.
