Default diameter

this link shows DIAMETER not AREA

Area doubles every three AWG numbers!

Poor Americans

Edit: and Liberians and Burmesians too of course!

I just remembered I have the "standard" equation written down for finding the diameter D (in inches) of an AWG gauge wire of gauge N. AWG is by far the most common gauge. Here it goes.
D=.005(92^(1/39))^(36-N). Yes, some brilliant soul decided to use the 39th root of 92.

For all intents and purposes the following is fairly close to accurate:

33ga 0.25mm
30ga 0.3mm
25ga 0.5mm
22ga 0.75mm
20ga 1.0mm (just over)
18ga 1.25mm
16ga 1.6mm
2mm is half way between 14 and 15ga

these gauges are SWG not AWG

If it's too big to post as an attachment go ahead and send it.

I've attached a units converter that I've used for the past 10 years as a zip file. It is a dos file but it is the fastest most comprehesive converter I've ever seen. Send yours and we'll compare. I'll send you an email so you'll you can return the attachment.

Hello,

Is there an easy way to determine the comparable AWG of (3) 18AWG wires twisted together?

Thanks

Kevinlee
