**Which sq mm wire current capacity?**

Cable Capacity For Cable Current Capacity = 4X Size of Cable in Sq.mm, Ex. For 2.5 Sq.mm = 4×2.5 = 9 Amp.

**What size cable do I need for 32 amps?**

For a 32-amp hot tub, 6mm² 3-core SWA cable is needed and a 10mm² 3-core SWA cable is perfectly suitable for a 40-amp Hot Tub. The electrician will calculate the size of cable required depending on the loading and the distance from the mains supply.

## What size cable do I need for 25 amps?

The required 25 amp breaker wire size is 10 AWG if you’re using copper wires. However, some 12-gauge electrical cables are rated for 25 amp or higher. Read the printed specification on the cable insulation to ensure its capacity.

### How do you calculate current cable rating?

Full Load Current = (KVA · 1000) / (1.732 · Voltage): Full Load Current = (100 · 1000) / (1.732 · 415) = 139 Amp….Let’s select 3.5 core 95 Sq.mm cable for single run, short circuit capacity = 8.2 KA.

- Current capacity of 95 Sq.mm cable is 200 Amp,
- Total derating current of 70 Sq.mm Cable = 200 · 0.93 = 187 Amp.

**Which wire is suitable for 1.5 ton AC?**
