Freebase

  1. Magnetic flux

    In physics, specifically electromagnetism, the magnetic flux through a surface is the component of the magnetic B field passing through that surface. The SI unit of magnetic flux is the weber, and the CGS unit is the maxwell. Magnetic flux is usually measured with a fluxmeter, which contains measuring coils and electronics, that evaluates the change of voltage in the measuring coils to calculate the magnetic flux.

The Standard Electrical Dictionary

  1. Magnetic Flux

    Magnetic induction; the number of lines of force that pass through a magnetic circuit. Synonym--Magnetic Flow.
