tesla/tes·la/ (T) (tes´lah) the SI unit of magnetic flux density, a vector quantity that measures the magnitude of a magnetic field. It is equal to 1 weber per square meter.
Etymology: Nikola Tesla, American engineer, 1856-1943
a unit of magnetic flux density, defined by the International System of Units as 1 weber per square meter, the equivalent of 1 volt/second per square meter, or 10,000 gauss.
teslaAn MRI term for the preferred unit of magnetic flux density, which corresponds to a field strength of 1 Weber/m2, where 1 Weber represents 1 x 108 (100,000,000) flux lines. 1.0 T = 104 gauss (G).
