The Physics of Thirst

Level pending

A traveller wandering in the desert for many days came across a well but the water there was 46 meters deep. In this moment of desperation he only has 323 meter long wire whose breaking tension 1.83N is a function of the number of strands of the wire combined as f(x)=1.83x. The only container he has is a 750 gram kettle having a volume of 500 cubic centimetre. If he needs a kettle full of water to survive, can he get through this alive?
