Approx. resistance, cap, inductance of length of wire


New Member
How can I estimate the values of resistance, capacictance, and inductance of 80 ft of 16 gauge wire?

The resistance of American Wire Gauge (AWG) 16 wire is 4.094 ohms/1000 feet at 25 degrees C.

Brittish SWG 16 wire is approximately 2.575 ohms/1000 feet at25 degrees C.

I would be surprissed if anyone has the other answers - but I'll be watching.
