Magnetic field Definition from Science & Technology Dictionaries & Glossaries
Dictionary of Automotive Terms
The area encompassed by the magnetic lines of force surrounding either a bar magnet or electromagnet. The flow of magnetic force between the opposite poles of a magnet. See field .
Technical English by wpv
The region within which a body or current experiences magnetic force.
ASTRONOMY UNBOUND
A region where a stationary magnet experiences a force. Magnetic lines of force are imaginary lines in space along which a hypothetical solitary magnetic north pole will travel. It has no effect on a static charged particle, if the magnetic field too is unchanging. It is a changing magnetic field that can accelerate charged particles. Field strength is measured in teslas and for comparison a good permanent magnet produces about 1 T, the magnetic field on the earth's surface is about 4 x 10-5 T, and interplanetary fields are around 5 x 10-9 T.
Astronomy and Physics Terms by ExploreSpace.com
A region of space near a magnetized body where magnetic forces can be detected.
Solar Physics Glossary
A field of force that is generated by electric currents. The Sun's average large-scale magnetic field, like that of the Earth, exhibits a north and a south pole linked by lines of magnetic force.
Magnetic field Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
A magnetic field is the magnetic effect of electric currents and magnetic materials. The magnetic field at any given point is specified by both a direction and a magnitude (or strength); as such it is a vector field. The term is used for two distinct but closely related fields denoted by the symbols and , where is measured in units of amperes per meter (symbol: A·m-1 or A/m) in the SI. is measured in teslas (symbol:T) and newtons per meter per ampere (symbol: N·m-1·A-1 or N/(m·A)) in the SI. is most commonly defined in terms of the Lorentz force it exerts on moving electric charges.
