How to calculate current capacity in a wire?
ρ = Specific resistance or resistivity of ConductorD = Distance in Feet (One way) i.e. the total circuit lengthI = Load Current
Which wire can carry more current?
Stranded wire is typically used in cords and other uses that require flexibility. Electricity has the skin effect, stranded has more skin exposed so there is that, but at normal household frequencies (50–60 Hz), the effect is minimal. A solid wire will be able to handle more current because it contains more conductive material.
How to calculate current carrying capacity?
Where K is the carrying capacityr is the rate of population increaseN is the population sizeCP is the change in population size
