Smurf tubing


i have a empty 3/4 inch blue smurf tube that i want to use to go to a J box and supply a instant hot water heater which requires 8ga and a AC unit that requires 10ga both 230volt, will all the wires fit in the 3/4 inch tube ?? and is it ok to run the 3/4 tube to a junction box and then go to the 2 different units ?
