  • 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 is the typical diameter of a 14 gauge wire?

  • In the wire size table below give the typical diameter of #14 copper wire as 2.05 to 2.32 mm or about 0.081 – 0.092 inches. The tables and notes below expand and provide detail about the ampacity and temperature ratings of various wire sizes and gives a brief history of U.S. NEC wire sizing table changes.

  • What size wire do I need for a branch circuit?

  • Branch circuit wire sizes for long runs: The long-run wire sizes given in the table above are for typical residential branch circuits up to 50A. These circuits are 120VAC (single phase) single conductor. Three phase power typically reduces the wire size to the next smaller. Cable size recommended based on voltage drop calculations.

  • How do I calculate the size of the ground wire?

  • To calculate ground wire size, use the Ground Wire Size Calculator. Insulation – Select the thermal rating of the insulation on the wire. Conductor – Choose the material used as a conductor in the wire.
