Matching AWGs to Amperes
December 13, 2008
i want to make a project in which i drive an IR led with 1A, i was wondering whether i need a specific wire for that, since 1A is not the common 200mA or less i work with. Is there a way to calculate the AWG (or standard diameter in mm) in relation to the current that will pass through it?
One other thing, is it safe to work with 1A (and 7.2V)? what happens if I ground a 1A wire (and 7.2V) through my body?
