# AWG to mm calculator

The AWG to mm calculator is a convenient tool for converting American Wire Gauge (AWG) measurements to millimeters (mm). It simplifies the process of determining the equivalent diameter in millimeters for various AWG wire sizes, ranging from AWG 0000 to AWG 40. By entering the AWG value, you can instantly obtain the corresponding diameter in millimeters, saving time and effort.

* Diameter and area values are rounded to fit the nearest AWG value.

** The diameter and area of the conducting wire without insulation.

## AWG to total area calculator

The AWG to total area calculator is a reliable tool for converting American Wire Gauge (AWG) measurements to the total cross-sectional area of a wire. By simply entering the AWG value, this user-friendly calculator instantly provides you with the corresponding total area in square millimeters. It simplifies the process of determining the wire's actual physical size, making it convenient for electricians, engineers, and anyone working with wires and cables.

## How to convert AWG to mm

When calclating AWG from diameter or cross sectional area, the diameter and cross sectional area are rounded to the nearest AWG equivalent values.

### Wire diameter calculation

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:

*d _{n}*

_{ (mm)}= 0.127 mm × 92

^{(36-n)/39}

0.127mm is the diameter of gauge #36.

### Wire cross sectional area calculation

The n gauge wire's cross sercional area A_{n}
in square millimeters (mm^{2})
is equal to pi divided by 4 times the square wire diameter d in millimeters (mm):

*A _{n}*

_{ (mm}2

_{)}= (π/4)×

*d*

_{n}

^{2}= 0.012668 mm

^{2}× 92

^{(36-n)/19.5}
