The magnetic induction that remains in a material after removal of the magnetizing field.
[From Middle English remanent, remaining, from Latin remanēns, remanent-, present participle of remanēre, to remain; see remain.]
(General Physics) physics the ability of a material to retain magnetization, equal to the magnetic flux density of the material after the removal of the magnetizing field. Also called: retentivity
[C17: from Latin remanēre to stay behind, remain]
rem•a•nence(ˈrɛm ə nəns)
the magnetic flux that remains in a magnetic circuit after an applied magnetomotive force has been removed.
