# awg vs current chart

• ### What is 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.

• ### What is the difference between AWG and metric gauge?

• Note that in AWG the diameter goes up as the gauge goes down, but for metric gauges it is the opposite. Probably because of this confusion, most of the time metric sized wire is specified in millimeters rather than metric gauges. Definition: ampacity is the current carrying capability of a wire.

• ### What is 0.0137 2900 kHz AWG?

• 0.0137 2900 kHz AWG Notes: American Wire Gauge (AWG) is a standardized wire gauge system used predominantly in the United States to note the diameter of electrically conducting wire. The general rule of thumb is for every 6 gauge decrease the wire diameter doubles and every 3 gauge decrease doubles the cross sectional area.

• ### What is the formula for a 50 gauge wire?

• An approximate but accurate enough form of this formula contributed by Mario Rodriguez is D = .460 * (57/64) (awg +3) or D = .460 * (0.890625) (awg +3). Metric Gauge : In the Metric Gauge scale, the gauge is 10 times the diameter in millimeters, so a 50 gauge metric wire would be 5 mm in diameter.
