Engineering ToolBox - Resources, Tools and Basic Information for Engineering and Design of Technical Applications! Calculate single and bunched electric wire cross-section area and diameter. Cross-Section Area of Single Wire
The cross-section area of a round single wire can be calculated as
A = D 2 π / 4
= 0.7854 D 2
A = cross-section area (mm 2 , in 2 )
D = diameter (mm, in) Cross-Section Area Calculator - Single Wire
Cross-Section Area of Bunched Wire
The cross-section area of bunched wires can be calculated as
A = n d 2 π / 4
= 0.7854 n d 2
n = number of wires
d = single wire diameter (mm, in) Cross-Section Area Calculator - Multiple Wires
Diameter of each wire (mm)
Number of wires
Diameter of a Single Wire Cross-Section Area
The diameter of a single wire cross-section area can be calculated as
