• ### 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.
