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.
(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
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.
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.
