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.
How do you find the diameter of a 36N 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.
