Magnetic Flux

The total number of magnetic lines of force passing normally through an area placed in a magnetic field is equal to the magnetic flux linked with that area.

(θ is the angle between area vector and magnetic field vector)
 
If θ = 0° then φ = BA, If θ = 90° then φ = 0

Unit and dimension

Magnetic flux is a scalar quantity. Its SI unit is weber (wb), CGS unit is Maxwell or Gauss × cm2; (1 wb = 108 Maxwell).
 
Other units

= Volt × second

= Ohm × Coulomb
= Henry × Ampere.
Its dimensional formula [φ] = [ML2T –2A–1]
