How To calculate Wire diameter (if gauge wire diameter dm in inches)

dk(in) = 0.005 in × 92(36-k)/39

How To calculate Wire diameter (if gauge wire diameter dm in millimeters)

dk(mm) = 0.005 mm × 92(36-k)/39

How to calculate Wire cross sectional area (in kcmil)

Ak (kcmil) = 1000×dk2 = 0.025 in2 × 92(36-k)/19.5
An=cross sectional area in kilo-circular mils
dn=wire diameter d in inches

How to calculate Wire cross sectional area (in inches) 

Ak (in2) = (π/4)×dk2 = 0.000019635 in2 × 92(36-k)/19.5
An=cross sectional area in inches
dn=wire diameter d in inches

How to calculate Wire cross sectional area (in millimeters)

Ak(mm2) = (π/4)×dk2 = 0.012668 mm2 × 92(36-k)/19.5

An=cross sectional area in millimeters
dn=wire diameter d in  millimeters

How to calculate Wire resistance (per kilofeet)

Rk (Ω/kft) = 0.3048 × 109 × ρ(Ω·m) / (25.42 × Ak (in2))
 R=resistance in ohms per kilofeet (Ω/kft)
 ρ =wire's resistivity in ohm-meters (Ω·m)
 An=cross sectional area An in square millimeters (mm2)

How to calculate Wire resistance (per  kilometer)

R(Ω/km) = 109 × ρ(Ω·m) / Ak (mm2)
R=resistance in ohms per kilometer (Ω/km)
ρ =wire's resistivity  in ohm-meters (Ω·m)
Ak=cross sectional area An in square millimeters (mm2)
