a. Induced strength or flux density in a magnetic field, measured in
maxwells: B = 4pi /A + H, where B = the flux density, P = the strength of
each magnetic pole, A = the cross-sectional area of a cylinder through
which the flux flows, and H = the magnetic intensity in oersteds.
See also: magnetic intensity
b. The surface area times the normal component of magnetic induction B;
the number of magnetic field lines crossing the surface of a given area.
Expressed in maxwells in the cgs system. AGI
