  1. Magnetic Induction

    power in a magnet of imparting its qualities to certain other substances.

The Standard Electrical Dictionary

  1. Magnetic Induction

    The force of magnetization within an induced magnet. It is in part due to the action of the surrounding particles of polarized material; in part to the magnetic field. (See Magnetic Induction, Coefficient of.) In a more general way it is the action of a magnet upon bodies in its field of force. In some cases the magnetism induced causes the north pole of the induced magnet to place itself as far as possible from the north pole of the inducing magnet and the same for the south poles. Such substances are called paramagnetic or ferromagnetic. They lie parallel or tangential to the lines of force. In other cases the bodies lie at right angles or normal to the lines of force. Such bodies are called diamagnetic. Some bodies are crystalline or not homogeneous in structure, and in them the lines of magnetic induction may take irregular or eccentric paths. (See AEolotropic.)
