## WHat do you mean by magnetic flux?

Magnetic flux is a measurement of the total magnetic field which passes through a given area. If we use the field-line picture of a magnetic field then every field line passing through the given area contributes some magnetic flux.

## What is magnetic flux Class 12?

Magnetic flux: The total number of magnetic field lines passing through a given area normal to it is called magnetic flux. Mathematically it is represented by ϕ and defined as the dot product of magnetic field vector and area vector i.e. given by. ϕ=→B. →A.

## What is magnetic flux Ncert?

Magnetic flux is defined as the product of the average magnetic field times the perpendicular area it penetrates. Area vector is considered as the amount of lines crossing an area also varies with the orientation of the area. It is a scalar quantity. Magnetic flux is denoted by ΦB or Φ. I Unit- Weber (Wb).

## What is magnetic flux in physics class 10?

Magnetic flux refers to the total number of magnetic field lines penetrating any surface placed perpendicular to the magnetic field. It is calculated as the product of the average magnetic field strength and the perpendicular area it penetrates.

## What is called flux?

Flux is the presence of a force field in a specified physical medium, or the flow of energy through a surface. Flux is depicted as “lines” in a plane that contains or intersects electric charge poles or magnetic poles. Three examples of flux lines are shown in the illustration.

## What is unit of flux?

The tesla (symbol T) is the derived SI unit of magnetic flux density, which represents the strength of a magnetic field. One tesla represents one weber per square meter.

## What is magnetic flux and its unit?

Definition: The number of magnetic lines of forces set up in a magnetic circuit is called Magnetic Flux. It is analogous to electric current, I in an electric circuit. Its SI unit is Weber (Wb) and its CGS unit is Maxwell. It is denoted by φm. The magnetic flux measures through flux meter.

## What is magnetic flux density formula?

Magnetic Flux Density is amount of magnetic flux through unit area taken perpendicular to direction of magnetic flux. Flux Density (B) is related to Magnetic Field (H) by B=μH. In magnetic flux formula μ is the permeability of the medium (material) where we are measuring the fields. …

## How do you calculate magnetic flux?

Magnetic Flux Formula Magnetic flux is the product of the average magnetic field times the perpendicular area that it crosses. Magnetic flux = Magnetic field * Area * (angle between the planar area and the magnetic flux)

## How to calculate magnetic flux?

determine the magnetic field. Measure the strength of the magnetic field.

• determine the total area. Calculate the total area the magnetic field is moving through.
• determine the angle. Calculate the angle between the magnetic field and the area.
• calculate the magnetic flux. Calculate the magnetic flux using the formula above.

## What does magnetic flux mean in physics?

Magnetic-flux meaning A measure of the quantity of magnetism, being the total number of magnetic lines of force passing through a specified area in a magnetic field.

## What does magnetic flux depend on?

Magnetic flux density does not depend on the surface area of a body. It is magnetic flux which depends on the surface area. for example if two different surface areas are place in B of same density then there will be change in flux but not in density.
