Assuming a factor of safety , Chemical Engineering

A large tower is to be supported by a series of steel wires; it is estimated that the load on every wire will be 13,300 N (3000 lbf). Verify the minimum needed wire diameter, assuming a factor of safety of 2 and a yield strength of 860 MPa (125,000 psi) for the steel.
