Magnetic field

Unit
Magnetic flux density determines the force on a moving electric charge.

Maxwell's fourth equation of electrostatics states that an electric current \(I\) causes a rotating magnetic field \(B\) and vice versa.

Closed loop

A closed loop (e.g. a circle) along which the magnetic field \(B\) is summed up by means of the line integral.

Here \( \text{d}\boldsymbol{s} \) is a small line element of the loop. The direction of \(\text{d}\boldsymbol{s}\) points tangential to the loop at each point on the loop.

Electric current

Unit
Electric current enclosed by the loop \(S\).

Vacuum permeability

Unit
Magnetic field constant is a physical constant and occurs whenever electromagnetic fields are involved. It has the value: \( \mu_0 = 1.256 \cdot 10^{-6} \, \frac{ \text{N} }{ \text{A}^2 } \).
