AWG to Metric Conversion chart | AWG to Metric Conversion table

This page covers AWG to Metric conversion chart. The AWG to Metric conversion table mentions AWG as input and gives cable diameter (in inch, mm) and cable cross sectional area(in square mm) as outputs.

The table-1 below mentions input and outputs required to translate AWG to metric equivalents (i.e. inch, mm and square mm). This is for cable with copper used as material for its construction.

Following equations can be used to convert AWG to metric units.
Cable diamter, Dn (mm) = 0.127 x 92(36-n)/39
Cable or Wire cross sectional area An (in square mm) = (π/4)* Dn2
Cable diamter, Dn (inch) = 0.005 x 92(36-n)/39
