# Can't understand why the unit of Reluctance is At/Wb

## Homework Statement

I can't figure out why the unit of Reluctance is At/Wb and not (At/Wb)m2
This is what I have from my textbook, with the red oval area being the part that I'm totally confused about

## The Attempt at a Solution

So the m/m cancels out to 1 making it
R=1/(Wb/At·m2)
which is = (At·m2)/Wb
then I have no idea what happened so that m2 vanished and R became At/Wb

I can't sleep scratching my head T_T
Thanks a bunch!

As your book says, reluctance is analogous to resistance in electrical circuits. Similarly, flux is analogous to current and mmf (Ampere turns) is analogous to voltage.

Note the division operator:

The underlined bit is in the denominator of the denominator, so to speak. Hence it can be "promoted" to the numerator of the overall expression.

OHHHHHHH!
Thank you so much!
I think I'll need to go back to secondary algebra for a bit of revision :(
