ASTM WK45019

    Revision of B258 - 02(2008) Standard Specification for Standard Nominal Diameters and Cross-Sectional Areas of AWG Sizes of Solid Round Wires Used as Electrical Conductors

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: B258 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: B01.02 | Committee B01 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK45019

    1. Rationale

    Rationale: There is an error in the footnote to Table 2 (Density and Resistivity of Electrical Conductor Materials). Footnote A to the table incorrectly shows the conversion method for converting the lb/mile2 weight resistivity basis to g/m2. The correct method is also shown in Table 1 of ASTM B193.
