• ### What is the size of a 1 gauge wire?

• 1 gauge wire is the first 鈥榥on-negative or 0鈥?wire gauge. 1 gauge wire diameter is 7.348 mm and it has a 42.4 mm2 (1 AWG to mm2) cross-section or area. Given the 42.4 mm2 thickness, the 1 AWG copper wire has a current-carrying ampacity of 130 amps at 75C.

• ### How many amps can a 4 0 wire handle?

• Ampacity-wise, the 4/0 AWG gauge wire can handle the largest amount of current of any AWG gauge wire. At 75C, it has a rated ampacity of 230 amp (with 195 amps and 260 amps at 60C and 90C temperature, respectively).

• ### What is the full cross section of a 1/0 wire?

• 1/0 gauge wire is commonly referred to as 0 gauge wire (n=0 in the equations in the beginning). This zero gauge wire has a diameter of 8.251 mm. If you use the mm diameter of the 1/0 gauge wire, you can calculate the full cross-section in mm2 to be 53.5 mm2.

• ### What is the size of the wire?

• The larger the AWG number or wire guage, the smaller the physical size of the wire. The smallest AWG size is 40 and the largest is 0000 (4/0). AWG general rules of thumb – for every 6 gauge decrease, the wire diameter doubles and for every 3 gauge decrease, the cross sectional area doubles.
