The Standard Electrical Dictionary
A theoretical conception of a cause of a magnetic field or of a distribution of magnetism. If we imagine a quantity of very short magnets arranged in contact with their like poles all pointing in the same direction so as to make a metal sheet, we have a magnetic shell. Its magnetic moment is equal to the sum of the magnetic moment of all its parts. If the shell is of uniform strength the magnetic moment of a unit area gives the strength of the shell; it is equal to the magnetic quantity per unit of area, multiplied by the thickness of the shell. If its strength is uniform throughout a magnetic shell is called simple; if its strength varies it is termed complex. Emtage thus defines it: A magnetic shell is an indefinitely thin sheet magnetized everywhere in the direction normal to itself.
