For some reason I need a flexible wire whose cross-section is equilateral triangle with the length of one side is 2mm.
I couldn't find any wire or even material in the market in such shape.
So Im planning to find the closest possible round wire option.
If I would use a triangular cross section's area would be:
sqrt(3)/4 * d^2 where d is the edge length
for d = 2mm
Are becomes 1.732mm^2
So I need to find a cable with around this area.
From the tables I could closest find 15AWG which corresponds 1.6502mm^2
Is my way of thinking correct?
In wire sizing AWG is measure for the entire wire together with its coat or for the copper part only?
