  1. Magnetomotive force

    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.
