# Magnetic-flux-density meaning

Magnetic flux density is defined as the amount of magnetic flux in an area taken perpendicular to the magnetic flux's direction.

An example of magnetic flux density is a measurement taken in teslas.

noun
A vector quantity measuring the strength and direction of the magnetic field around a magnet or an electric current. Magnetic flux density is equal to magnetic field strength times the magnetic permeability in the region in which the field exists. Electric charges moving through a magnetic field are subject to a force described by the equation F = q v × B , where q is the amount of electric charge, v is the velocity of the charge, B is the magnetic flux density at the position of the charge, and × is the vector product . Magnetic flux density also can be understood as the density of magnetic lines of force, or magnetic flux lines, passing through a specific area. It is measured in units of tesla.
The amount of magnetic flux through a unit area taken perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic flux.
noun
The magnetic flux per unit area perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic force: it is measured in teslas or gausses.
noun
(physics) The measurable component of the response of a medium to the presence of a magnetic field.
