Best Answer

A #16 copper conductor is not a wiring size that is used in homes. This is because the smallest breaker for residential use is rated for 15 amps. A #16 copper conductor is only rated at 13 amps. For a load of 13 amps over 100 feet a #12 copper would be required.

This is a voltage drop question. A voltage must be stated to answer this question.

I do not disagree with the previous answer but wanted to add that, generally, 14 gauge wire will carry 15 amps. If distance seems to be a problem and you don't have enough information to do an actual calculation, up-size the wire to 12 gauge.

A #2 copper wire with an insulation factor of 75 and 90 degrees C is rated at 115 and 120 amps respectively.

A #10 copper conductor with an insulation factor of 90 degrees C is rated at 30 amps.

As for the 100 feed, this is a voltage drop question and a voltage needs to be stated.

You can safely use 10-2 wire for 30 amps at 40 feet.

30 amps is how much a 10-2 wire will carry at 110 feet. 10 gauge wire is only good for thirty amps per the national electrical code. Using 80% of the breakers usage you will actually be getting only 24 amps.

Yes, a #10 wire will carry 30 amps for 30 feet. If the load is rated as continuous then the wire will have to be derated to 80% capacity which will leave you with 24 workable amps. If the load demands currents higher that 24 amps then you will have to go to the next wire size up which is a #8 which is rated at 45 amps.

Aluminum 4/0 wire car carry 180 amps at at 75 degrees Fahrenheit or 205 amps at 90 degrees. .

If you mean 2/0 copper wire it is rated 175 amps. # 2 wire is 115 amps. If you are referring to 2.0 metric it is rated 15 amps.

2 AWG in Aluminium is required.
