the effect in which a conductor that carries an electric current perpendicular to an applied magnetic field develops a voltage gradient transverse to both current and field
Origin: From Edwin Herbert Hall, American physicist.
The Hall effect is the production of a voltage difference across an electrical conductor, transverse to an electric current in the conductor and a magnetic field perpendicular to the current. It was discovered by Edwin Hall in 1879. The Hall coefficient is defined as the ratio of the induced electric field to the product of the current density and the applied magnetic field. It is a characteristic of the material from which the conductor is made, since its value depends on the type, number, and properties of the charge carriers that constitute the current.
