Why are the wires twisted in twisted pair cabling?

In multi pair cable sets, for example a Cat. 5 cable, the wires of each pair are twisted to prevent mutual induction into the other cable pairs. The tighter the twist, the less amount of induction into the other cable pairs.

Are twisted pair wire and coxial cable the same?

No. Coaxial cable is a single wire that has a thick coating around it. A common use of coaxial cable is for cable television. This is the cable that goes from the jack on the wall into your cable box. Twisted pair contains multiple cables which are split into pairs and twisted together. CAT5/CAT5e/CAT6 cable are all examples of twisted pair. There are a total of 8 wires inside. Every two wires are twisted together to form a pair. The purpose of the cables being twisted together is to reduce electrical interference between the wires.

Why twisted pair cables are twisted?

So that any external EM noise is evenly distributed across all the wires, rather than only concentrated on the wires closest to the source of the noise. It helps cancel out crosstalk.
