AWG

American Wire Gauge, a standard set of thicknesses for wire used in the United States

Tables of AWG wire sizes

The table below shows various data including both the resistance of the various wire gauges and the allowable current based on plastic insulation. The diameter information in the table applies to solid wires. Stranded wire/s are calculated by calculating the equivalent cross section. Fusing current (melting wire) is estimated based on 25°C ambient temperature. The table below assumes Direct current, or Alternating Current frequencies equal to or less than 60 Hz, and does not take skin effect into account. Turns of wire is an upper limit for wire with no insulation.
