Guass Simple Explanation

    I feel kinda stupid asking this, but can anyone give a simple explanation of the difference between Guass and strength of a magnet, and what exactly Guass is?

    Are you referring to Gauss?...if you are, in terms of magnetism, it is a unit measure of the magnetic field strength. The current standard unit, however, is Tesla.

    Oh I see. Sorry about the misspelling. I think that's all I needed to know, thanks!
