I have a detached building that is approx. 115 ft. from the main service entrance in my home,(200 amp main) I have room for a 60amp breaker in the main and I want to run this wire to a subpanel with breakers. will this wire work to operate a 120 volt window air conditioner, 120 volt hot tub, small 120 volt extractor fan, and lighting?

Answer: 
What service you need would depend on the loads of those devices. First question to ask is how much load are you going to need. If you are set on 60amp from your main, you have some options.
When you say 60amp breaker-you are either running a single pole or double pole 60amp off the main. The single pole off the main will provide 60amp&120v. A double pole will provide 60amp&120v/240v. Double pole Read More

6-3UF cable is for 120/240V since it has 4 total conductors (2 #6 hots, 1 #6 neutral, 1 #10 ground). If you want to run only 60a&120v on this wire you can just not use 1 conductor but it would be cheaper to buy 6-2UF cable.
Now to get a little more complicated, if you run the full 6-3 to panel you may be able to split the hots depending on your panel and run 60amps per leg. That would give you more circuit options and actually 120amps of total current-60 per leg. So you could feed a 50a hot tub on one leg and the rest of the equipment on the other or something similar. For this you would get a 100a or 125a panel
As for wire size, if you are installing a 60amp service to the other building, you should be fine with #6 although at that length you are pushing into #4 territory. #6 should work but to keep voltage drop <5% you technically should use #4. Going "by the book" you would use #4 over 100ft but in practical use it would probably not be an issue. If you get a permit/inspection the inspector may require you to use #4. Read Less

1. Is there any reason I CANNOT run DC power over this 6/3 cable in a solar power application? Use would be just over 100' total from PV combiner box via buried/conduit through service entrance then inside to charge controller. Load would be 30 Amps at 24 volts.

Answer: 
You are going to realize about a 10.3% loss over 100 feet one way. For your charge controller to properly sense it needs no more that a 5% loss over run one way. Using 1 AWG will get you to 3.2%. You could, theoretically, place 2 conductors in parallel and that will get you to 5%. Theoretically. Actual application goes against NEC. UF-B grade wire does not need a conduit. If you could up your PV voltage Read More

If you could up your PV voltage to 48VDC using 6 AWG will get you right at 5%. Are you sure about 30ADC? that sounds like 95% efficiency on a PV panel... Read Less

Answer: 
6/3 uf is sized approx. 1.2" for fill consideration. It technically depends on type of conduit (rigid, PVC, FMC, etc) you are using but generally speaking you need at least 1.5". I would suggest the largest you are willing to pay for though since UF is a bear to pull through conduit.
