# AWG Wire Size to | mm sq.mm inches and kcmil Conversion: Calculator Provided

You can use the calculator below to convert your wire sizes in AWG to either sq.mm, mm, inches, or kcmil. Alternatively, if you prefer for whatever reason, the actual formulas are also provided and can be used to complete the conversion manually.

## Formula for Converting AWG to Inches

To convert an AWG wire size to inches, use the conversion below:

AWG no = 0.005 inch x 92(36-n)/39, where ‘n’ represents the AWG number.

For example:

AWG 5 = 0.005 x 92(36-5)/39 = 0.005 x 92 (31)/39 = 0.005 x 36.38811 = 0.181941 inches.

## Formula for Converting AWG to mm

To convert AWG size to mm, use the formula below:

AWG no = 0.127 mm x 92(36-n)/39, where ‘n’ is the AWG number.

Using AWG wire size 5 as an example, the equivalent diameter in mm is:

= 0.127 x 92(36-5)/39 = 0.127 x 36.38811 = 4.621 mm

So, to find the equivalent wire size in mm for AWG no. 5

=0.127 x 92(36-5)/39= =0.127 x  36.38811 =4.621 mm
