    Clients Sumo-chef 3000 blender caught fire. I fixed up the motor and base, but the cable needs replacing. Using aluminum conductors, please size a standard cable size if the blender uses 220V(ac) and the blender is 1 HP.

    Use coefficient for aluminum at 19.
    I found that HP=745.699 W and that means that I=3.39A but from here am lost. Do I use V=2pIL/A?

    Update on Question as they wrote it wrong, it should read,

    Sumo-Chef 3000 blender caught on fire. I fixed up the motor and base, but the cable needs replacing. Using aluminum conductors, please size a standard cable size if my blender uses 220 VAC, is 3 metres from the outlet, and the blender is 1 HP. Is your cable size appropriate for chassis wiring? Explain your answer.
