• ### What is the smallest AWG size?

• 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. Note – WM Wire Gauge, US Steel Wire Gauge and Music Wire Gauge are different systems.

• ### What does AWG mean in electrical?

• American Wire Gauge Conductor Size Table American wire gauge (AWG) is a standardized wire gauge system for the diameters of round, solid, nonferrous, electrically conducting 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).

• ### What is American Wire Gauge (AWG)?

• In the US, the most commonly used wire gauge system is AWG, or American Wire Gauge. The higher the gauge number, the smaller the wire. The largest diameter AWG size is 0000 (4/0) which is pronounced 鈥榝our aught鈥? representing a diameter of.46鈥? The smallest diameter is 32 AWG, representing.00795鈥?

• ### 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.
