magnatic flux Definition and Topics - 9 Discussions

A magnetic field is a vector field that describes the magnetic influence on moving electric charges, electric currents, and magnetic materials. A moving charge in a magnetic field experiences a force perpendicular to its own velocity and to the magnetic field. A permanent magnet's magnetic field pulls on ferromagnetic materials such as iron, and attracts or repels other magnets. In addition, a magnetic field that varies with location will exert a force on a range of non-magnetic materials by affecting the motion of their outer atomic electrons. Magnetic fields surround magnetized materials, and are created by electric currents such as those used in electromagnets, and by electric fields varying in time. Since both strength and direction of a magnetic field may vary with location, they are described as a map assigning a vector to each point of space or, more precisely—because of the way the magnetic field transforms under mirror reflection—as a field of pseudovectors.
In electromagnetics, the term "magnetic field" is used for two distinct but closely related vector fields denoted by the symbols B and H. In the International System of Units, H, magnetic field strength, is measured in the SI base units of ampere per meter (A/m). B, magnetic flux density, is measured in tesla (in SI base units: kilogram per second2 per ampere), which is equivalent to newton per meter per ampere. H and B differ in how they account for magnetization. In a vacuum, the two fields are related through the vacuum permeability,







{\displaystyle \mathbf {B} /\mu _{0}=\mathbf {H} }
; but in a magnetized material, the terms differ by the material's magnetization at each point.
Magnetic fields are produced by moving electric charges and the intrinsic magnetic moments of elementary particles associated with a fundamental quantum property, their spin. Magnetic fields and electric fields are interrelated and are both components of the electromagnetic force, one of the four fundamental forces of nature.
Magnetic fields are used throughout modern technology, particularly in electrical engineering and electromechanics. Rotating magnetic fields are used in both electric motors and generators. The interaction of magnetic fields in electric devices such as transformers is conceptualized and investigated as magnetic circuits. Magnetic forces give information about the charge carriers in a material through the Hall effect. The Earth produces its own magnetic field, which shields the Earth's ozone layer from the solar wind and is important in navigation using a compass.

    Conductive loop that is contracting in a magnetic field

    $$V = \int \left(\vec{v} \times \vec{B}\right) \bullet \vec{dl} - \int _S \frac{\vec{dB}}{dt} \bullet \vec{ds}$$ From the statement I know that: B⊥v, (B x v) // dl and B // ds. $$V = \int vBdl - \oint _S \frac{dB}{dt} ds$$ v is the speed with wich all the segments dl are aproximating to the...

    Are there other variables that control climate change?

    Hello all It's been a while ,as I read the almost daily news on climate change , some question come up to my mind , dose the ionosphere has any effect on climate change , as we all know now the earth magnetic field is weakening ,and the temperature is rising ,dose this two variables related to...

    Electromagnetic Induction

    Homework Statement Homework Equations Not really? I just used the right hand rule and Lenz's law The Attempt at a Solution By the right hand rule, outside of loop 1, the magnetic field is out of the page. However, increasing resistance means that field is weakening. We know by Lenz's law...

    Faraday disk/ how is the magnetic flux changing?

    i can not seem to figure out how is the magnetic flux is changing and thus the current is induced , "A "is constant (same disk is spinning ) and "B" is constant and does not change , so how is the current induced ? and more specifically how is the change of magnetic flux is happening ? thanks...
