It is the number of magnetic field lines passing through a surface (such as a loop of wire). The magnetic flux through a closed surface (such as a ball) is always zero. This implies that there cannot be magnetic charges in classical electromagnetism.
- Magnetic field
- James Clerk Maxwell demonstrated that electric and magnetic forces are two complementary aspects of electromagnetism.
- Maxwell's equations describe the behavior of both the electric and magnetic fields, as well as their interactions with matter.
- Gauss's law gives the relation between the electric flux flowing out a closed surface and the electric charge enclosed in the surface.
- Magnetic circuit is a method using an analogy with electric circuits to calculate the flux of complex systems of magnetic components.
- Magnetic mono pole is a hypothetical particle that may be loosely described as "a magnet with only one pole".
- Magnetic flux quantum is the quantum of magnetic flux passing through a superconductor.
- Carl Friedrich Gauss developed a collaboration with Wilhelm Weber which led to new knowledge in the field of magnetism.
