__Wire Pull Force Calculator:__

Enter the values of co efficient of friction u , inner diameter d^{2}_{(inches)}, length L_{(feet)} , material factor M & wire size I_{(guage)} to determine the value of wire pull force WPF_{(lbs)}.

__Wire Pull Force Formula:__

__Wire Pull Force Formula:__

The wire pull force WPF_{(lbs)} in lbs is equal to the co efficient of friction u into multiply the inner diameter d^{2}_{(inches)} in inches again multiply the length L_{(feet)} in feet is divided by the material factor M into multiply the wire size I_{(guage)} in guage.

The equation of the wire pull force can be writtern as,

WPF_{(lbs)} = u * d^{2}_{(inches)} * L_{(feet)} / ( M * I_{(guage)} )

Here,

WPF_{(lbs)} = wire pull force in lbs

u = co efficient of friction

d^{2}_{(inches)} = inner diameter in inches

L_{(feet)} = length in feet

M = material factor

1) .008 for copper

2) .006 for aluminum

I_{(guage)} = wire size in guage

__Wire Pull Force Calculation:__

__Wire Pull Force Calculation:__

1)To calculate the wire pull force and the co efficient of friction .75 and the inner diameter 4feet and the length 30feet and material factor .008 for copper and the wire size 12guage.

Answer

WPF = u * d^{2} * L / ( M * I )

WPF = .75 * 4^{2} * 30 / ( .008 * 12 )

WPF = 5,250 lbs.

2)To calculate the wire size and the wire pull force 5,250 lbs and the co efficient of friction .75 and the inner diameter 4feet and the length 30feet and material factor .008 for copper.

Answer

WPF = u * d^{2} * L / ( M * I )

5250 = .75 * 4^{2} * 30 / ( .008 * I )

I = 12gauge.
