The SI-derived unit of magnetic flux, equal to the flux that produces an electromotive force of one volt in a conducting loop when the flux is uniformly reduced to zero within one second. See Table at measurement.

(Units) the derived SI unit of magnetic flux; the flux that, when linking a circuit of one turn, produces in it an emf of 1 volt as it is reduced to zero at a uniform rate in one second. 1 weber is equivalent to 108 maxwells. Symbol: Wb
