the B. & S. gauge, represent a geometric series between No. 4/0
and No. 36, and involve, therefore, large numbers of decimals for
their exact expressions. In preparing the above table the
specifications of the American Society for Testing Materials, dated
June 1, 1912, were taken into consideration. These provide that for
soft wires the permissible variation from nominal diameter shall be
for wire 0.01 inch in diameter and larger, 1% over or under. For
wires less than 0.01 inch in diameter, 0.1 mil over or under. For
medium hard and hard wire 1% variation is allowed for wires 0.1
inch and larger, and 1 mil for smaller wires. In expressing the
size of such wires not more than three decimals of an inch shall be
used, namely, whole mils. The specifications further condemn the
use of large numbers of decimals in expressing the diameter of
wires, and recommend that actual diameters rather than gauge
numbers be used. MAGNET WIRE For magnet wire double-cotton-covered,
to obtain the diameter add for wires from 4/0 to 8 14 mils 9 to 15
11 mils 16 to 34 9 mils 35 to 37 8i mils 37 to 40 8 mils to the
diameter of the bare wire. While these values represent fairly the
average results obtained from good quality material, better values
are sometimes obtained. ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING PROBLEMS F. C.
