    can anyone tell me what is the relationship between weight & length of material (CU & Al) depending on its gauge size????

    Twice the thickness equals twice the mass (all other things being equal).
    Twice the length equals twice the mass (all other things being equal).

    The length doesn't depend on the gauge!
