# copper wire gauge diameter

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 is32 AWG,representing.00795鈥?/strong>.

• ### What is the gauge of an electrical wire?

• The Gauge of an electrical wire means the thickness of the wire. A certain number represents the Gauge. The higher the number, the thinner the wire is. Industries use the American Wire Gauge method to measure the thickness of a wire. The AWG method is a standard method developed in the United States.

• ### What is the size of AWG copper wire?

• AWG Copper Wire Size and Data Table Chart @ 100 Degrees F AWG Strand Type Inches MM D.C. RESISTANCE OHMS 1000 FT. 16 105/36 .059 1,499 4.0 14 Solid .064 1,630 2.6 14 7/22 .073 1,854 2.3 2/0 259/23 .414 10,516 0.077 48 more rows …

• ### What is the smallest gauge wire 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.

• ### How do you calculate the diameter of an N gauge wire?

• The n gauge wire diameter d n in millimeters (mm) is equal to 0.127mm times 92 raised to the power of 36 minus gauge number n, divided by 39: dn (mm) = 0.127 mm 92 (36-n)/39 The n gauge wire’s cross sercional area A n in kilo-circular mils (kcmil) is equal to 1000 times the square wire diameter d in inches (in):
