Magnetic Induction


also magnetic flux density (B), a fundamental characteristic of magnetic fields.

In the International System of Units, the unit of magnetic induction is the tesla (T), and in the cgs system, the gauss (G) (1 T = 104 G). Magnetometers used for measuring magnetic induction are called fluxmeters.
