Re: Magnet Wire



Alex,

The density of copper is 8.96 g/cm^3.  For 22AWG wire (.643mm diameter), that's
2.912g/m.  In a 250g roll, you'll get about 85 meters.  Figure about 340
meters of
22AWG wire per kg.  (For those in using US, thta's about 500 feet per
pound).  For
some reason, those numbers seem low, but that's what trusty "Tex" says.

Hope that helps

Mark
