Origin of magnetic flux:
a measure of the strength of a magnetic field over a given area
magnetic field, magnetic flux, flux(noun)
the lines of force surrounding a permanent magnet or a moving charged particle
A measure of the strength of a magnetic field in a given area.
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
Magnetic induction; the number of lines of force that pass through a magnetic circuit. Synonym--Magnetic Flow.
