The SI derived unit of magnetic flux. A magnetic flux of one weber, passing through a conducting loop and reduced to zero at a uniform rate in one second, induces an electric potential of one volt in the loop. One weber is equal to one volt per second, or 108 maxwells. The weber is named after German scientist Wilhelm Eduard Weber (1804–1891).
