The legal limit is somewhat lower than the physical limit. The number allowed depends on the insulation type and the current carried by the wire. One table I saw put the limit at 5 wires of size AWG 8 in 3/4 inch conduit. Consult your applicable electrical code.

The diameter of AWG 8 (American Wire Gauge) is .128496" (bare wire) if this is just a mathematical problem.
