The space around a magnetic object in which magnetic force acts. A magnetic field is conceived of as consisting of flux lines that originate at the north magnetic pole and terminate at the south magnetic pole.
The lines of force surrounding a permanent magnet or a moving charged particle; SYN. magnetic flux, flux.
Region around a permanent magnet, or around a conductor carrying an electric current, in which a force acts on a moving charge or on a magnet placed in the field. The field can be represented by lines of force, which by convention link north and south poles and are parallel to the directions of a small compass needle placed on them. A magnetic field's magnitude and direction are given by the magnetic flux density, expressed in teslas. See also polar reversal.
Okolina magneta do daljine na kojoj se još opaža njegova sila, njegovo dejstvo.
