      For 50 amps, you’ll need a wire gauge of 6. Fifty amp breakers are most often used to power many different appliances. However, a kitchen oven can alone require 50 amps. Many electric dryers also require a 50 amp breaker.

      You can calculate gauge with the wire size calculator https://electric-shocks.com/wire-size-calculator/
