I'm learning to interpret the table here (about 1/3 of the way down):
What are examples "Chassis wiring" and what is "power transmission"?
My specific situation: I have a 70 foot run of 10/3 wire to a subpanel
inside my house. How many amps can I have on that subpanel?
NEC 2008 section 240.4(D):
(D) Small Conductors. Unless specifically permitted in 240.4(E) or
(G), the overcurrent protection shall not exceed that required by
(D)(1) through (D)(7) after any correction factors for ambient
temperature and number of conductors have been applied.

(7) 10 AWG Copper. 30 amperes
