electromagnetic moment

n
(General Physics) a measure of the magnetic strength of a magnet or current-carrying coil, expressed as the torque produced when the magnet or coil is set with its axis perpendicular to unit magnetic flux density. It is measured in ampere metres squared. Symbol: m Also called: magnetic moment Compare magnetic dipole moment
