What is awg wire?

AWG stands for American Wire Gauge.


Which is larger in diameter12 AWG or 15 AWG wire?

12 awg is larger.


What does AWG mean?

American Wire Guage. The smaller the number the larger the wire. As in an AWG 14/2 wire is much smaller than an AWG 10/2 wire.


What is the difference between 10 awg and 12 awg speaker wire?

10 AWG wire will have less resistance per foot and therefore you can have longer runs with 10 AWG than 12 AWG without as much loss of signal. Additional to loss of signal there is a need to maintain a low impedance driving the typical speaker with its 4 ohm or 8 ohm coil resistance, to avoid frequency-distortion. A guide rule is that the speaker cable should have a total resistance around 1% of the speaker resistance (or less). On that basis, for 5 yards of speaker cable for a 4 ohm speaker the wire size would be 4 sq. mm (11 AWG) or for an 8 ohm speaker 2 sq. mm (14 AWG). <<>> Using the above formula of 1% of the speaker resistance the above answer is not correct. For a 4 ohm speaker at 1% is .04 ohms. The resistance of #12 wire is .001588 ohms per foot. This will allow you to run 25 feet and still stay within the parameters. For a 4 ohm speaker at 1% is .04 ohms. The resistance of #10 wire is .00100 ohms per foot. This will allow you to run 40 feet and still stay within the parameters. You can see, what the first answer states is correct.

Which wire is smallest in AWG?

The larger the AWG number the smaller the wire. 10 AWG wire can carry more current than 12 AWG wire.The wire sizes of 24 and 26 are the smallest that are used in the electrical.See related links below

What is the AWG of 7 strands of AWG 33 wire?

Use a wire table to find the cross-section area of #33 wire, multiply by 7, then find the AWG for that cross-section.


Difference between awg and swg?

AWG is American wire gauge and SWG means Standard wire gauge .. swg+1=awg according to my calculation...
