    For a formula you would need to know the diameter of wire. So you could get the area of a cross section. And the volume of copper per inch or foot of wire. The weight of copper. Then you could calculate the weight of an inch, or foot, or a thousand feet.

    I just gave the numbers.

    Sincerely,
