Properties of Magnetic Fields

A magnetic field is found in the area around magnetic materials and current carrying conductors, and has both a direction and a magnitude at each point. A magnetic field can either attract or repel other magnetic objects at a distance. A magnetic field differs in this...

Magnetic Flux Density

Magnetic flux density (B) is the quantity of magnetic flux (Φ) per unit area (A), measured at right angles to the magnetic field. It is measured in either tesla (T) or weber per square metre (Wb/m2) – the former being more commonly used. Magnetic flux...
