# What is maximum distance 10-2 wire can be run to a dryer?

If you are wiring a dryer the first thing you should know is that it takes a three wire. It needs the third wire for a neutral to operate the timers and drum motor. Usual distance is not more that 50 feet.

### What is the relationship between distance and gravitational force?

At a greater distance, the gravitational force is less. More specifically, the gravitational force is inversely proportional to the square of the distance. For example, if the distance is increased by a factor 10, the force decreases by a factor of 102 = 100. At a greater distance, the gravitational force is less. More specifically, the gravitational force is inversely proportional to the square of the distance. For example, if the distance is increased by…

### How far can you run 102 wire without voltage drop?

I assume you mean 10/2, as in 10 awg, 2 conductor copper wire? The answer is zero feet. Any time you run a current through a wire, there is voltage drop, no matter how short the wire is. The longer the wire, the larger the voltage drop will be. What you really want to know, I think, is how far you can run 10 awg wire and stay within the acceptable limit of voltage drop…
