magnetic flux (Φ) a quantitative measure of a magnetic field.

magnetic flux (N)

a quantitative measure of a magnetic field.

magnetic flux

A term referring to the lines of a magnetic field, which indicate the strength of a magnetic field. Magnetic flux is expressed by the SI (International System) unit weber, which equals one volt-sec.
