14 AWG of 105 degree Celsius copper wire is rated for twenty-five amps.

12 awg wire is rated for 20 amps.

Copper wire current ratings assume 10 amps per mm2 for currents up to a few amps. 26 AWG wire has a cross sectional area of 0.13 mm2 so this logic says 1.3 amps.

15 amps

No. 12 awg wire is rated at 20 amps maximum.

A #10 copper wire 90 degree insulation is rated at 30 amps.

The amps on any wire is determined by the voltage and the load that is being served. If you are asking what is the maximum current allowed on a #8 AWG, that would be 40 amps for a 60 degree Celsius rated wire, 50 amps for a 75 degree Celsius rated wire and 55 amps for a 95 degree Celsius rated wire.

Generally speaking, 2 AWG copper wire will safely carry 115 amps.

The voltage has nothing to do with the capacity of a wire to handle current. A #12 copper wire with an insulation factor of 60, 75 or 90 degrees C is rated at 20 amps.

15 amps requires AWG # 14 wire.

For typical residential wiring: 14 AWG = 15 amps 12 AWG = 20 amps 10 AWG = 30 amps 8 AWG = 40 amps

Yes you can. You did not say how many amps were required.
