    The first is the number of the gauge - the thickness of the main conductors. The second is the number of main conductors. There usually will be a ground wire in addition to the main conductor wires. So you end up with a spec like "10/3 with ground".

    Wire sizes

    Can someone decode the wire sizes for me. I see things like 10/3 alot and just want to know what it means and what other sizes I might need to know.
    Thanks
