magnetic field strength[mag′ned·ik ′fēld ‚streŋkth]
An auxiliary vector field, used in describing magnetic phenomena, whose curl, in the case of static charges and currents, equals (in meter-kilogram-second units) the free current density vector, independent of the magnetic permeability of the material. Also known as magnetic field; magnetic field intensity; magnetic force; magnetic intensity; magnetizing force.
