Q: How do I determine what beam I need to support a load bearing wall?

I am removing a wall and placing a beam to support the overhead load. The span is 16 feet, there is solid sill to hold the beam supports. What dimension of a beam will I need (2) 2X10, (3) 2X10, (2) 2X12, (3) 2X12? Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.
