magnetic field

Synonyms:
  • MF
Electromagnetism. A vector field occupying physical space wherein magnetic forces may be detected. A magnetic field occurs typically in the presence of a permanent magnet, current-carrying conductor, or an electromagnetic wave. The strength of a magnetic field can be expressed either by the magnetic field strength (unit: ampere per metre [A/m]) or the magnetic flux density (unit: Tesla [T]).
