• ### What is the diameter of a 1/0 gauge wire?

• 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. This is quite a thick wire still, also used in welding and heavy battery appliances. How many amps can a 1/0 gauge wire handle?

• ### 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.

• ### 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.

• ### How do you calculate AWG wire size?

• AWG Wire Sizes (see chart below) AWG: In the American Wire Gauge (AWG) system, wire size diameters can be calculated by applying the formula D (AWG)=.00592 ((36-AWG)/39) inch. For the 00, 000, 0000 etc. gauges you use -1, -2, -3, which makes more sense mathematically than double nought.
