magnetic flux

n.
A measure of the quantity of magnetism, being the total number of magnetic lines of force passing through a specified area in a magnetic field.

magnetic flux

n
(General Physics) a measure of the strength of a magnetic field over a given area perpendicular to it, equal to the product of the area and the magnetic flux density through it. Symbol: φ

magnet′ic flux′


n.
the total magnetic induction crossing a surface, equal to the integral of the component of magnetic induction perpendicular to the surface over the surface: usu. measured in webers or maxwells.

magnetic flux

A measure of the strength of the magnetic field around a magnet or an electric current, based on the total number of magnetic lines of force that pass through a specific area.
