The axial tensile stresses created by these forces will vary along with the forces because the cables have a constant area all along their lengths.  The axial force is again found by:




and all the stresses found in this analysis will be tensile.  There are 3200 square inches of steel to resist these forces.  One stress will be found as an example and the rest called out on a diagram.
