Definitions for magnetomotive forcemægˈni təˈmoʊ tɪv, -ˌni-
This page provides all possible meanings and translations of the word magnetomotive force
the force that produces magnetic flux
the force associated with a magnetic field and that produces magnetic flux; it is the work required to carry a magnetic monopole of unit strength once round a magnetic circuit; measured in ampere-turns
Magnetomotive force or magnetomotance is any physical driving force that produces magnetic flux. In this context, the expression "driving force" is used in a general sense of "work potential", and is analogous, but distinct from force measured in newtons. Magnetomotive force is so named because it plays a role in magnetic circuits analogous to that of electromotive force in electric circuits.
