    If you mean convert to "cgs" units of Maxwells, it's:
    2.07*10^(-15) Webers = 2.07*10^(-7) Maxwells

    Yes,Weber is a unit from SI-mKgs.It needs no conversion,as usually units are converted from SI-cgs to SI-mKgs and not viceversa.

    So 2.07*10^(-15) Webers is in SI units and does not need to be multiplied by 10^7 or anything else right?

    Ups,in the case you didn't get from my previous post,mKgs IS A PART OF SI.It is the reccomended system of units.
