Default Conversion of Gauge in mm

Hello,

Somebody tell me the conversion of gauge for mm.
If I need a inductor of 20 gauge or 18 gauge, what is the correspondent number in mm?

Hi Cristiano,

This converter should sort it out for you.

Can anyone explain to me why you americans use a wire area unit with no easy relationship with number vs area?? How do you do if you want to get the area of wire? Do you know all numbers? If I say wire gauge 28. Do everyone know what I'm talking about?

LOL. That was quite raw. I think you're about to have some angry Americans on your case...

The only thing that has stopped the US from totally switching over to metric is several governmental type people from the south thinking its 1901. Anywhere that logical measurements are needed, such as science labs, use metric already and have done so for quite some time. Anyways, there are two more very respectable countries using the imperial system, Liberia and Burma. So there you have it.

HI Vikash,

I already had this link. But I don't understand a wire of 18 Gauge is:
1.2065mm;
1.2192mm;
1.2446mm;
1.0236mm;

I should use a wire of 1 mm or 1,2mm?

Hi Cristiano,

Well, to be clearer it's actally
18 SWG = 1.2192mm (Standard Wire Gauge)
18 AWG = 1.0236mm (American Wire Gauge)

I've never heard of the others. You need to find out which unit that 18 gauge is measured in. How are you caluclating that you need 18 or 20 gauge?

Is it possible that all (many) americans "feel" the wire area when they hear a number but this seems harder to learn than the multiplication table.

This was only a reflexion, dirty joe.
