Ok, so I’m spending a lot of time sitting since my knee is injured.  As such I’ve been finding lots of good videos online that I feel like linking here.  Here’s a great one showing a pull test of a 6mm prussik cord wrapped into an 8mm static rope.  It breaks at nearly 2000lbs–which makes the prussik more than strong enough for all of the common uses we have for it.
