# of wires in 1/2" conduit

I am running some outside wiring(12/2 rated for outside use) under my deck for a few flood lights.

Can I run two separate 12/2 wires in a 1/2" conduit? I have two lights that I want on individual switches.

The short answer is "no." I know that doowaditty will appreciate this simple, straightforward answer.

I'll leave it to others to provide the technical details which will only confuse and frustrate you.

truthfully, the tech details frustrate even those in the trade. how much captive heat, in ampacity, would 2 floodlamps create anyways...
