maxwell

Definitions:

  • The unit of magnetic flux in the centimeter-gram-second system, equal to the flux perpendicularly intersecting an area of one square centimeter in a region where the magnetic intensity is one gauss.
  • The c. g. s. unit of magnetic flux; the flux which, acting upon a unit magnet-pole, will repel it with a force of one dyne; the flux per square centimeter of cross-section in a field of unit flux density.
  • A cgs unit of magnetic flux, abbreviated Mx; it is equal to the magnetic flux passing through one sqaure centimeter which is normal to a magnetic field of one gauss.
  • A <xref>unit</xref> of <xref>magnetic flux</xref> that produces one <xref>abvolt</xref> per <xref>turn</xref> per <xref>second</xref>
  • a cgs unit of magnetic flux equal to the flux perpendicular to an area of 1 square centimeter in a magnetic field of 1 gauss
  • Scottish physicist whose equations unified electricity and magnetism and who recognized the electromagnetic nature of light (1831-1879)
