## How to convert AWG to mm

When you want to calculate AWG from diameter or cross sectional area, the values are generally rounded of to the nearest AWG equivalents.### Wire diameter calculation

The n gauge wire diameter d_{n}in millimeters (mm) is equivalent to:

*d*

_{n}_{ (mm)}= 0.127 mm × 92

^{(36-n)/39}

0.127mm is the diameter of gauge #36.

### Wire cross sectional area calculation

The n gauge wire's cross sectional area A_{n}in square millimeters (mm

^{2}) is given by the formula:

*A*

_{n}_{ (mm}2

_{)}= (π/4)×

*d*

_{n}

^{2}= 0.012668 mm

^{2}× 92

^{(36-n)/19.5}
