## magnetic flux density

(magnetic induction) Symbol: B. A vector quantity that is a measure of the strength of a magnetic field in a particular direction at a particular point. It may be given in terms of the force, F , on a charge, q , moving in the magnetic field:
B = F /(qv sinθ)
where v is the velocity of the charge, which is moving at an angle θ to the direction of the field. Magnetic flux density is usually measured in teslas. The magnetic flux, symbol: Φ, is the surface integral of B , i.e.
Φ =   B .dA =   B cosα dA
where α is the angle between B and a line perpendicular to the surface. The magnetic flux density is thus the magnetic flux passing perpendicularly through unit area. Magnetic flux is measured in webers.

## magnetic flux density

[mag′ned·ik ′fləks ‚den·səd·ē]
(electromagnetism)
A vector quantity that is used as a quantitative measure of magnetic field; the force on a charged particle moving in the field is equal to the particle's charge times the cross product of the particle's velocity with the magnetic flux density (SI units). Also known as magnetic displacement; magnetic induction; magnetic vector.

By using the resulting array, we were able to improve the magnetic flux density by 17% and the power generation efficiency of the energy harvesting device by 16% compared with the conventionally-designed 2-dimensional array.
1) with the maximum value of the magnetic flux density [B.sub.m] depends on the size of the section, i.e.
Equation (1) indicates that the signal voltage is dependent on the average flow velocity, the magnetic flux density, and the pipe diameter.
According to the calculations and analyses above, the conclusion can be drawn that the magnetic flux density of ferromagnetic materials varies and there exists sudden change in the process of stress-magnetism coupling.
The magnetic flux density was increased from 0 mT to 326 mT, which corresponded to the electric current from 0 A to 6 A.
The magnetic flux density B is recorded along line [L.sub.1] indicated in Fig.
From sources we know, that the necessary results can be considered as the level of magnetic flux density of more than 1 Tl .
When the magnetic flux density (B) perpendicular to the package is larger than operate point (Bop), the output will be turned on (pulled low) and held until B is lower than release point (Brp).
The price to be paid is a narrower stator tooth or stator core that will increase magnetic flux density in these regions, increasing magnetic losses.
According to Lorentz law, when exposed to a magnetic field, moving charged particles experience a force proportional to the product of their velocity and the magnetic flux density. The influence of a magnetic field on the function of neuron can be explained based on the Lorentz force acting on the ions present in the intracellular and extracellular environment.
