# Wire Pull Force Calculator, Formula, Wire Pull Force Calculation

## Wire Pull Force Calculator:

Enter the values of co efficient of friction u , inner diameter d2(inches), length L(feet) , material factor M & wire size I(guage)  to determine the value of wire pull force WPF(lbs).

 Enter Co Efficient of Friction: Enter Inner Diamete: inches Enter Length: feet Enter Material Factor: Enter Wire Size: guage Result – Wire Pull Force : lbs

## 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 d2(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 * d2(inches) * L(feet) / ( M * I(guage) )

Here,

WPF(lbs) = wire pull force in lbs

u = co efficient of friction

d2(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:

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.

WPF = u * d2 * L / ( M * I )

WPF = .75 * 42 * 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.
