copper wire diameter

Best answer


When copper wire is made, it is drawn through a series of dies which makes the wire thinner (and longer of course). In the American Wire Gauge (AWG), after passing through the first die it has a diameter of7.34 mm (0.289 inches). This size wire is then called 1 AWG.

  • 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 gauge is used to measure copper wire?

  • As stated above, in the United States practi cally the only gage now used for copper wire is the American Wire Gage. In sizes larger than No. 0000 AWG copper conductors are practically always stranded. Sizes of stranded conductors are specified by the total cross section in circular mils.
