Enter the American Wire Gauge number into the calculator to determine the cross-sectional area in square millimeters. This calculator can also evaluate the AWG number given the cross-sectional area in square millimeters is known.

## Awg To Mm2 Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the conversion from American Wire Gauge (AWG) to square millimeters (mm²).

mm² = 0.0005067 * 92^{((36-AWG)/39)}

Variables:

- mm² is the cross-sectional area in square millimeters AWG is the American Wire Gauge number

To calculate the cross-sectional area in square millimeters, subtract the AWG number from 36. Divide the result by 39 and raise 92 to the power of this quotient. Multiply the result by 0.0005067.

## What is Awg To Mm2?

AWG to mm2 is a conversion between two units used to measure the cross-sectional area of a wire, which is important in determining the wire’s electrical properties. AWG stands for American Wire Gauge, a standard used primarily in North America, while mm2 stands for square millimeters, a metric unit used internationally. The larger the AWG number, the smaller the wire diameter, and vice versa for mm2.

## How to Calculate Awg To Mm2?

The following steps outline how to calculate the cross-sectional area in square millimeters (mm²) using the formula for AWG to mm² conversion:

- First, determine the AWG number.
- Next, subtract the AWG number from 36.
- Divide the result by 39.
- Raise 92 to the power of the quotient obtained in the previous step.
- Multiply the result by 0.0005067.
- Finally, calculate the cross-sectional area in mm².
- After inserting the AWG number and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
