A not-quite-trivial Google search (you have to know the right engineering terms) can lead you to the answer. I searched for "plexiglas mechanical properties" (correct spelling is important), which led me to the manufacturer's Web site.

There, I followed the "Technical Data" link and got to a PDF file with everything you need. Page 5 has all the mechanical stuff.

Wouldn't it of been better to give us a rough idea what you need accomplished so we can just tell you what thickness you should use?

Check with Tap Plastics - www.tapplastics.com I think. I found this, which is one type of acrylic and may be different from what you're using. The weight support would be dependent on the thickness, of course, but they have a lot of different types and will know if you check with them.
